One of the Great Classics of Political Economy

L’Ami des Hommes, ou Traité de la Population.

Six parts bound in two vols. Large 4to, cont. polished mottled calf, spines nicely gilt. Avignon, 1756-1758-[1760].

First edition of all six parts, and a fine copy, of one of the great classics of political economy. This work marks the birth of the physiocratic school and contains the first appearance on a large scale of the “Tableau Economique” of Quesnay (portions of Quesnay’s work had been privately printed in a few copies only at the palace at Versailles in 1758 and 1759).

In this work, Mirabeau made the ideas of Cantillon known and the book had a very great influence in the years before the Revolution.

Fine set.
