A Plea for Peasant Proprietors, With the Outlines of a Plan for Their Establishment in Ireland (Reprints of Economic Classics)

New York: Augustus M. Kelley Publishers, 1969. Hard Cover. Near Fine / No Dustjacket. Item #051184

Disguised as a mild-mannered refutation of myths concerning the desirability of large farms and tenancy at will, this book is actually a strong, if apologetic, indictment of the economic policies that killed one million people and displaced millions more in the so-called "famine" in 19th century Ireland. Clean and bright; no owners' marks; lacks dust jacket and shows just a hint of rubbing at the spine tips, otherwise excellent.

Price: $7.50
