Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in Political Economy, 2009, issue 57, pages 197-210
Are surveyed here the confronted problems and the choices accomplished by a team of economists of the University Lyon 2 to accomplish the edition of the complete economic writings of Auguste and Léon Walras. One remind here the theoretical and practical reasons of their decision, their confrontation with scarrered funds of archives, their editorial choices and of characteristics of the critical apparatus. Also are underlined various difficulties that they met with, particularly those linked in search of means over long period, but also possibilities opened for the interpretation of a great work. Finally, wins and disappointments of a heavy editorial enterprise.
