An Essay on the Principle of Population was first published anonymously in 1798 by Joseph Johnson. The author was soon identified as The Reverend Thomas Robert Malthus. While it was not the first book on population, it has been acknowledged as the most influential work of its era. Its 6th Edition was independently cited as a key influence by both Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in developing the theory of natural selection. A key portion of the book was dedicated to what is now known as Malthus' Iron Law of Population - this name itself is retrospective, based on the iron law of wages, which is the reformulation of Malthus' position by Ferdinand Lassalle, who in turn derived the name from Goethe's "great, eternal iron laws" in Das Göttliche. This theory suggested that growing population rates would contribute to a rising supply of labour that would inevitably lower wages. In essence, Malthus feared that continued population growth would lend itself to poverty

On population / Thomas Robert Malthus ; edited and introduced by Gertrude Himmelfarb by T. R Malthus( Book )

14 editions published between 1958 and 1964 in English and Undetermined and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his essay on the principle of population, published in 1798, Malthus shattered the conception that the destiny of men would follow the course of unlimited progress." An influential work of an era, Malthus' Iron Law of Population, this essay explores the concept that growing populaiton rates contribute to the supply of labour, leading to a loss in wages and, ultimately, poverty

26 editions published between 1800 and 2012 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To proceed to the point: I am most strongly inclined to suspect, that the attempt in most parts of the kingdom to increase the parish allowances in proportion to the price of corn, combined with the riches of the country, which have enabled it to proceed as far as it has done in this attempt, is, comparatively speaking, the sole cause, which has occasioned the price of provisions in this country to rise so much higher than the degree of scarcity would seem to warrant, so much higher than it would do in any other country where this cause did not operate."
