The copy of the Austrian School economist Frank Fetter (1863-1949), with the gift inscription in ink to the front free endpaper: "Frank Whitson Fetter, From Father - Christmas 1939", as well as several pencil annotations by Fetter.

The first edition of the autobiography of John Atkinson Hobson (1858-1940), the English economist and social scientist best known for his theory of underconsumption and his writings on imperialism, which notably influenced Vladimir Lenin.
