Other highlights included a couple of John Maynard Keynes lots – one of them a 1930 first of A Treatise on Money, the two volumes (one shown above right) still in the dust jackets, which made a record £1900.

A 1923 first of JMK’s Tract on Monetary Reform was part of a five-piece job lot that followed, but an 1871 first of WS Jevons’ Theory of Political Economy would most likely have accounted for the much higher than predicted sum of £2000 needed to secure it.
