1 A. Smith, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, with a Commentary by the author of ‘England and America’, 4 vols (Charles Knight, London 1835–9). The first volume, including all of Book One bar the final chapter, obviously sold out before the others and Vol. I was reprinted in 1840, and bundled with the remaining stock of the first edition. 2 Walter Bagehot, ‘Adam Smith as a Person’, Fortnightly Review Vol. XX New Series (1876) p. 37.

And W. Davies (Successors to Mr. Cadell) in the Strand; and W. Creech, Edinburgh’ (Creech’s name having been added as a result of a postscript in Stewart’s letter to Preston). 3 Sales were unimpressive. Andrew Strahan’s account of the book in his ledgers, titled ‘Dr. Smith’s Posthumous Essays’, records on the verso that on 23 December 1794 Strahan paid the executors £150 as his one-half of the copy money for the first edition (the other half would be paid by Cadell and Davies). There were no further payments to Smith’s estate, because a second British edition was never required during this period, though the work was reprinted quickly in Dublin, and four years later in Basil (Basel),4 and would appear as a volume in Cadell and Davies’s edition of Smith’s Works (1811–12).

1 From Malthus’s testy responses to enquiries from Cadell and Davies regarding his plans it seems that the latter did still entertain hopes of his producing an edition for them, although Malthus obviously had a quite contrary impression. 3 And so nothing ever came of Malthus’s plan to produce an edition of Wealth of Nations, which is regrettable since he did at least understand something of Smith and political economy – not something one could with confidence say of William Playfair, or later of David Buchanan.
