First edition, first printing, limited to 2,000 copies. Inscribed by the editor. Publisher's original card wrappers with French flaps and titles in black to the upper cover and spine. A very good copy, the binding firm with a little foxing and marking to the covers and some chipping to the spine with minor loss (more so to the tail). The contents with a little light foxing to the endpapers are otherwise clean throughout and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps.
Inscribed in black ink to the front free endpaper: "With cordial greetings / S.N. Agarwal". A selection of Gandhi's writings on the sarvodaya (literally meaning "welfare, upliftment of all") economic model, alongside writings by other figures drawing upon his ideas, edited by the Gandhian economist, activist, writer, and former governor of Gujarat, Shriman Narayan Agarwal (1912-1978). Only 2,000 copies of this first edition were printed in January 1951. A particularly scarce title signed.
