I'm embarrassed to say I own Penrose's Theory of the Growth of the Firm. I should have thought of her.

Some of these I know more by reputation. I've read Schumpeter's History of Economic Analysis a long time ago. Mrs. Schumpeter's post-humuous editing job is quite impressive, whatever state the manuscript was left in.
