First edition of a collection of key writings by Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman, “one of the 20th century’s leading economic scholars, on a par with giants like John Maynard Keynes and Paul Samuelson… [and] spiritual heir to Adam Smith” (New York Times). Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the title page, “For William V. Luneburg Best regards, Milton Friedman.” The recipient William Luneburg was the president of the American Motors Corporation and a friend of Friedman’s. He introduced the first subcompact car, the Gremlin, in 1970 to compete with energy-efficient small foreign cars. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design by Bud Edmondson. A nice association.
