First edition.

Le Play's reputation rests chiefly upon his investigations into the social, economic and cultural conditions of working class families, the results of which were published in 1855 in his "Les ouvriers européens". The present volumes are a sequel to that work and contain the author's mainly moral conlusions.

A fine set.
