Reference : 21983

‎Oeuvres diverses de Monsieur Jean Locke.‎

‎A Rotterdam, Chez Fritsch et Böhm, 1710. Title printed in red and black and with charming title vignette depicting a seating Minerva with books and press. (8), xcix, (1), 468 pp. 12mo. Contemporary vellum, paper label on spine, some staining on label, some spots on cover but a bright and very fine copy. Yolton 372; Attig 868. First French edition. This first French edition contains the first appearance in French of Locke's Epistola de tolerantia. This edition contains furthermore: Le Clerc's Eloge, Locke's Latin epitaph, the Conduct of the Understanding, Discours sur les Miracles, Méthode nouvelle de dresser des recueils, Mémoires pour servir à la vie d'Antoine Ashley, Comte de Shaftesbury.The work is modelled after the Posthumus Works of 1706 but printing the first French translation of the 'toleration' letter from the Latin edition instead of the incomplete fourth letter, and omitting the 'Examination of P. Malebranche's Opinion'.Locke defends religious toleration in general, marking it as separate from the concerns of civil magistrates as a private and personal matter. Locke however advocates that toleration is to be withheld from religious groups who deny it to others. His view was of course supported by his experiences in France, where the persecution of the Huguenots had reached extremes between 1679 and 1685. - Very good copy, uncut. ‎

‎In Firenze, Appresso Andrea Bonducci, 1751. Titles printed in red and black, large folding table, engraved vignette on title of first volume. Two volumes in one. xxxiii, (1, blank), 191 (misnumbered 189), (1, blank) pp.; xxiii, (1, blank), 316, (2), 116 pp. 4to. Contemporary Italian vellum boards, label with gilt lettering to spine, a very nice copy. Einaudi 3476; Goldsmiths 8635; Higgs 115; Yolton 164 (only four copies); Attig 507; Kress, Italian Economic Literature, i, 275. First Italian edition, rare. A very good copy of this handsomely printed book translating John Locke's Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest and Raising the Value of Money (1692) and Further Considerations concerning Raising the Value of Money (1695), the only early translation of Locke's papers on money, based on the folio Works of 1740, and is furnished with extensive footnotes by the translators Giovanni Pagnini and Angelo Tavanti. At the end of the second volume is a 116 pages essay by Pagnini on the correct price and value of money entitled Essay on the just price of things, the correct value of money and on the trade of the Romans. Pagnini was destined to become one of the major economic historians in the eighteenth century with the publication of his History of the tithe in 1765-66.The year of publication of this translation, and the translation itself, represent an interesting moment in time: 1751 is also the year Galiani's famous and important Della Moneta was published. Galiani's roots were firmly planted in the southern culture which had been rekindled by the work of Locke and Newton. One of Galiani's first intellectual undertakings had been the translation of Locke's essay on financial problems, which he dropped when he heard that in Florence another version was being produced, edited by Pagnini and Tavanti (the present work) (Carpanetto and Ricuperati, Italy in the Age of Reason 1685-1789, p. 250). - Front paste-down with a few wormtracks, an old bookplate verso of the front blank, a very fine large paper copy, printed on heavy paper. ‎
