Catalogue Note

After publication of The Economy of Machinery and Manufactures in 1832, Babbage added three chapters to examine questions of political economy. These chapters were added to the work for the second edition in 1833. To make the text available to purchasers of the first edition book, the additional chapters were also issued separately, as here. The pamphlet is extremely rare.
