Description:
London [i.e. Paris?], [no publisher,], 1770. An attack on the physiocrats, in contemporary green quarter vellum Octavo (195 x 126 mm). Bound after another work in contemporary continental green quarter vellum, red morocco label, spine richly gilt with foliate tool, marbled paper sides, red edges. Half-title and errata present. A couple of tiny marks to sides, scattered foxing to contents. Corners neatly restored; a very attractive copy. First edition of the work that established Galiani's reputation as an economist, a bold attack on the physiocrats and a virulent critique of the royal edict of 1764 liberalising the trade in grain. Galiani was secretary of the Neapolitan embassy in Paris, and was well connected with the leading enlightenment figures of the day. He left the manuscript with Diderot, who translated the work into French and saw it through publication. Voltaire wrote favourably of the work, comparing the author to a cross between Plato and Moli√®re, yet other philosophes reacted with… Read more

One or two tiny nicks to the cloth, corners lightly rubbed, with a little surface marking; paper stock lightly browned, more severely in places, as usual; a very good copy.

Several chapters discuss aspects of trade and economics.
