DE LA CAISSE D'ESCOMPTE.

[Paris]: np, 1785. 22.5 cm. xvi, 124, (2), [125]-226, (1). Ends with "Post-scriptum" on p. 207-225, "Omission" on p. 226, table of contents on the page following. The "Post-scriptum" was a last-minute addition to the work, which as originally printed ended with the "Omission" on p. 207 and table of contents on the verso of that leaf. Text in the post-script ends mid-word on p. 210, with one half of page 211 blank [apparently a printer's error]. The digital copy available through the University of California library system has the same printer's fault, and calls this version "a rare variant of the quarto edition published in the same year, without place of publication." Mirabeau's essay on this monopolistic financial institution and its harmful effects on the French economy just before the French Revolution; contributions to the work were also made by Etienne Claviere, Brissot de Warville, and du Pont de Nemours. Kress B908. Goldsmith’s Kress 13059. Plain drab wrappers (loss to head of spine, some other chipping and wear); a very good untrimmed copy. Item #60199

Price: $1,500.00
