MILL,John Stuart. Zasady ekonomji politicznej z niektóremi zastosowaniami do ekonomji spo?ecznej. Napisal po angielsku…t?umaczyli R.P.i B. Tom pierczwy [-drugi] Petersburg, Józafat Ohryzki 1859, 1860

2 volumes, octavo, contemporary cloth, spines lettered gilt but faded, pp.iv, 428, v; xiii, (3), 559, viii, leaves a lightly spotted, contemporary Polish ownership in ink on the titles and old Polish library stamps, an excellent copy.

First edition in Polish, but printed in St Petersburg in Russia. The translator has been partially identified as Bankowski and to avoid the Russian censor Mill's passages on communism and the French utopian movements have been excluded. Bankowski published three books in Polish in St Petersburg – educational books for the poorer and rural classes of Poland.

Very rare, we have located one copy, in the Polish National Library.
