Goldsmiths 21762; Kress B6973. - FIRST EDITION. Malthus (1766-1834) had published in his lifetime six editions of his famous Essay on the principle of population (first edition in 1798). The work sometimes includes the text of the fifth edition of the Essay published the same year, but was also separately issued - as here - for owners of previous editions. The final version of the Essay appeared in 1826. The presence of such a work in the library of Talleyrand is not surprising. Talleyrand arguably was one of the French politicians most receptive to the English economic and financial thinking of his time.
