Patricia James on Malthus

Patricia James (1917-1987) was a historian and biographer of Thomas R. Malthus. The papers in the James archive contain research, conducted from about 1961 onwards, which resulted in the publication of three major works on Malthus: The Travel Diaries of T. R. Malthus (Cambridge University Press, 1966); Population Malthus: His Life and Times (Routledge, 1979); and the posthumously published two-volume variorum edition of An Essay on the Principle of Population (Cambridge University Press for the Royal Economic Society, 1990).
