The archives of Piero Sraffa

The Library owns a collection of theoretical manuscripts of Piero Sraffa,  as well as his correspondence on scientific matters and the texts of his lectures on the advanced theory of value held at Cambridge in 1928-31. None of the material has been published and the originals are preserved at Trinity College, Cambridge.

The manuscripts trace the evolution of Sraffa’s work on the theory of relative prices and distribution over the period from 1925-26 to 1960.
