Malthus implies above that Playfair had ‘offered’ an edition to Smith’s publishers, but it seems altogether too much of a coincidence that the Playfair edition originated in a purely unsolicited approach, given that the complete work, with supplementary chapters, appeared within the year.

His ‘Editor’s Preface’ emphasises the progress made by the science of political economy since 1784, the date of the last revisions made by Smith to the Wealth of Nations, while the French Revolution and the growth of manufacturing in Britain had likewise altered the issues to which political economy had been addressed. What, then, could one learn from Smith? Still, however, the great and leading merits of Dr Smith’s work continue unimpaired. 1 This new edition would therefore provide brief annotations and supplementary notes which would alert the reader to the fallacy of some of Smith’s principles, and indicate the progress of political economy, together with that of commercial and financial legislation.
