An economist by experience and observation rather than by study, he became the author of a considerable number of works on commerce of much greater value than the wordy compilations of Büsch's in his time more famous forerunner J.P. Marperger. As a theoretical economist Büsch advocated liberal principles and free trade, "though not without mercantilist errors", and for this as well as for other reasons his work has been regarded as an anticipation of Friedrich List's "national system of political economy." Text in German, Gothic script. Overall in good condition.
