‎A Amsterdam, Aux Depens de la Compagnie, 1725. Titles printed in red and black, with title vignettes and portrait-frontispiece. 8 volumes in 4.

Contemporary polished calf, spines richly gilt with raised bands and gilt lettering, bindings with some very minor spots, volume two with small damage, contrasting labels with gilt lettering, a very nice copy. Schosler, p. 21; Huisman, D., Dictionnaire des Philosophes, i, p. 229-230; Colonia, ii, p. 358; Willaert, Bibliotheca Janseniana Belgica, 9212; Petzholt, pp. 27-28; Besterman, pp. 467-468. Important work describing and discussing approximately 5000 works. Adrien Baillet was converted to Jansenism by Walon de Beaupuis and Godefroi Hermant and it was the latter who obtained for him the post of librarian of François-Chrétien de Lamoignon. His first task was to catalogue the very large and beautiful library and this work forced him to develop a thorough knowledge about many of the books. In two years time he produced a catalogue of 32 volumes gathering an enormous knowledge in the process. It was the access to so many books and his formidable knowledge which made him decide to produce a sort of 'catalogue raisonné' of the production of the human mind, the Jugemens des Savans ....., the most celebrated and useful of all his works. The praise bestowed on the Jansenists in this work brought down on Baillet the hatred of the Jesuits. Although this is his most celebrated work, Baillet remains best known for his Vie de Descartes, a mine of information on the philosopher and his work, derived from numerous unimpeachable authorities. - Very good copy. ‎

New Palgrave, i, p. 253; Einaudi 524. Third edition. The first serious history of political economy. 'In addition to doctrinal history it covered an enormous amount of economic history from the ancient world to the early 1840s .... Blanqui's treatment of history reflects his support of free trade and sympathy for the working class. It may be said that the whole of his life was spent in one long and laborious inquiry, principally directed to the solution of those questions relating to the working classes, the importance of which he had realised more clearly than most of his contemporaries. The brilliancy and vigour of his language added an additional attraction to his teaching' (New Palgrave). - Lightly browned throughout, binding of volume two slightly loose. ‎

‎Nouveau dictionnaire historique et critique pour servir de supplément ou de continuation au Dictionnaire historique et critique de Pierre Bayle.‎

‎A Amsterdam, Chez Z. Chatelain, H. Uytwerf, F. Changuion, J. Wetstein, P. Mortier, Arkste et Merkus, M. Uytwerf, et M.M. Rey, A La Haye, Chez P. de Hondt, 1750-1756. Titles printed in red and black, engraved title-vignettes. 4 volumes. Folio. Contemporary polished calf, spine with raised bands, labels with gilt lettering, somewhat worn, corners bumped, some damage to head and foot of spines, one joint weak. Brunet, i, 1826; Conlon 50:438. First edition. Jacques-Georges Chauffepié (9 November 1702, Leeuwarden - 5 July 1786, Amsterdam) was an 18th-century French biographer and calvinist minister and preacher. He added some 1400 articles to Bayle's dictionary. He spend many years preparing the work and showed an enormous learning. It was, together with Bayle's dictionary, one of the earlier dictionaries in Europe published in vernacular to make an impact on the European world of letters."The project of a supplement to the dictionary of Bayle was conceived at the death of the philosopher, but was not executed. After some English people of letters gave an English translation of the book by Bayle in 40 vol, with considerable additions, it was proposed to Chauffepié to translate into French the additions made in England. These additions consisted either in addition to articles by Bayle, either new articles, He devoted many years to this work, and made himself new additions and new articles. Out of nearly fourteen hundred items found in his dictionary, more than six hundred, almost all English, are translated without additions from Chauffepié; about two hundred and eighty are reworked by him, some five hundred items are entirely his. Chauffepié has neither the piquancy nor cynicism of Bayle. He meets the character of Minister which he was invested with. He sometimes straightens English authors, and shows great erudition. Only in a work of this scope can we afford the explanatory notes of the text, or dissertations on some curious history or literature points" (Wikipedia). ‎

The best and entirely revised edition by De la Marre, incorporting the new discoveries by Duhamel and others. 'Le Dictionnaire oeconomique a joui d'une grande réputation. Il est même encore estimé aujourd'hui. Mais il faut considérer cet ouvrage dans deux états differens, tel qu'il était en 1709, lorsqu'il sortit des mains de l'auteur, agé alors de 76 ans, et tel qu'il parut en 1767 par les soins de M. de la Marre. Cette édition est préférable à la première et à celles qui ont paru entre ces deux époques, parceque l'éditeur a eu soin de la corriger et de l'enrichir des découvertes de Duhamel, etc.' (Musset-Pathay, who has a large article on Chomel and his work on page 300-301).This was by far the most popular and important work on domestic economy in the 18th century, dealing with domestic chemistry, the keeping and caring of domestic animals, recipes for food and home-made medicine, beauty and health suggestions. It is of course also an attractive and illustrated dictionary on agriculture, gardening, botany, huntig, breading of animals, bee-keeping, vineyards, gastronomy, hunting, and so forth and alphabetically arranged. The work enables a person to be completely self-supporting and to produce for a market. ‎

[ii] (series title dated 1763), xxii, [ii], 244, 88; 48 (the pagination of the six supplements is continuous) pp. 8vo in 4s. Finely bound in late nineteenth century crushed blue morocco, spine in compartments, gilt-lettering directly to spine, tooled with theatrical mask to spine and to all four corners of upper and lower board, upper edge gilt, gilt dentelles, partly uncut, a fine copy. Grand-Carteret (Almanachs Français) 192; Dufour, Bibliographie de Paris, p. 395; Soleinne, IV, 283; OCLC locates a number of copies of the main work, but only Dutch Royal Library, Lyon and Bibliotheque Nationale for the full complement of supplements. First edition, very rare with all six supplements present, of this detailed account of French theatre up to the middle of the eighteenth century. The supplements, which were published separately over the course of six years, are very rarely present. Here they are collected with a general title page, dated 1763, published 'at the expense of the author', and bound in a fine 'theatrical' binding. The Tablettes dramatiques are a most valuable source for the history of French theatre, covering first the history of the theatre, the history of the foundation of specific theatres, an inventory of plays performed or printed for the period 1552 to 1752, with critical commentary, and finally a biographical dictionary of authors and actors. The supplements generally follow the same format and give information on new plays, a performance calendar for the period in question, details of ballets, and biographical information on new emerging actors. A fascinating overview of French or more specifically Parisian theatre history, documenting the transition from medieval theatre to the highly organised and politicised drama up the middle of the eighteenth century.The chevalier de Mouhy (1701-84), was a playwright and prolific author on the theatre, he also published an Histoire du theatre français depuis son origine jusqu'en 1780. ‎

Contemporary half calf, spine gilt with raised bands, gilt lettered label, marbled boards, rear joint and top of spine skillfully repaired. Del Bo, Fourier, p. 68 (first volume only); not in Del Bo-Gerits, Supplement, (cf.: 29); not in Walch-Gerits, Supplement (cf.: 38). First edition of both volumes, not listed as such in any of the bibliographies. Since the second volume was published three years after volume 1, one rarely finds the two volumes together in original editions. At the time the second volume was published, the first volume had reached already its fourth edition. The first volume deals with the utopists from Plato's time to modern thinkers such as Saint-Simon, Fourier and Owen. The second volume deals with communists, chartists, utilitarians and humanitarians, among others Owen, Hunt, Jean Bodin, Harrington, Cabet, Jeremy Bentham. There is furthermore an appendix entitled "Hobbes et Harrington."Louis Reybaud (1799-1879) became the leading historian of the Socialist school in Paris. His 'Etudes sur les Réformateurs Contemporains' was the first work to bring the word socialism into general use. 'All (his) works show an observant mind and an independent character. They are written with intelligence, spirit, and good sense' (Palgrave, iii, p. 304). ‎

Last and best edition, first published in 1700. This work has been reprinted through the whole of the 18th century. The author was a well-informed merchant of Amsterdam. During the 18th century the book was constantly revised and enlarged, so that by the end of the century little remained of the original work except the title. The 1781 edition was by far the best counting-house guide that had appeared, being, in this respect, infinitely superior to the dictionaries of Savary and Postlethwayt (McCulloch). - Fine copy on heavy paper. ‎

Contemporary marbled calf, spines gilt with raised bands, red labels with gilt lettering. Kress 4584; Goldsmiths 7819; not in Einaudi; not in INED. Jacques Savary (1622-1690) was for some time director of the French Royal Domains, and later became general business agent to the Duke of Mantua. He had such sound notions about commerce and was so successful in his operations that Colbert appointed him in 1670 in the "Conseil de la Reforme", which was to reform and refine the rules of commercial practice. The "Commercial Code" of 1673 resulting from it was called after him "Code Savary". He was then also pressed to write down and publish all his commercial knowledge, which pressure led to the publication of the famous Le parfait Négociant (1675). It taught everything a merchant should know, but only his left papers revealed to the world the immense and universal knowledge on commerce Savary possessed. The dictionary was immensely successful and covers all aspects of commerce and trade as well as legal and historical matters. Deals among others with: trading cities throughout the world, their manufactures, operation of foreign trade, trading companies (including a short history of the South Sea Company), banking (including an account of John Law's Bank), bookkeeping, etc. etc. The dictionary was the first of its kind to appear in Europe, and has furnished the principal part of the material for most of the dictionaries that were to follow. The project was sponsored by the French government who justly considered that such a dictionary, if well executed, would be of national importance. Hence a considerable, and indeed the most valuable portion of the work is compiled from memoirs sent to the author, by order of government, by the inspectors of manufactures in France and by the French consuls in foreign countries (see: McCulloch, p. 61). The dictionary is preceded, in volume one, with an elaborate, long (upto column 544) separate essay on the "État général du commerce de l'Europe" (and followed by the other continents Africa, Asia and the Americas). - Very small damage to head of spines of volumes 1 and 2. ‎

Jacques Savary (1622-1690) was for some time director of the French Royal Domains, and later became general business agent to the Duke of Mantua. He had such sound notions about commerce and was so successful in his operations that Colbert appointed him in 1670 in the "Conseil de la Reforme", which was to reform and refine the rules of commercial practice. The "Commercial Code" of 1673 resulting from it was called after him "Code Savary". He was then also pressed to write down and publish all his commercial knowledge, which pressure led to the publication of the famous Le parfait Négociant (1675). It taught everything a merchant should know, but only his left papers revealed to the world the immense and universal knowledge on commerce Savary possessed. The dictionary was immensely successful and covers all aspects of commerce and trade as well as legal and historical matters. Deals among others with: trading cities throughout the world, their manufactures, operation of foreign trade, trading companies (including a short history of the South Sea Company), banking (including an account of John Law's Bank), bookkeeping, etc. etc. The dictionary was the first of its kind to appear in Europe, and has furnished the principal part of the material for most of the dictionaries that were to follow. The project was sponsored by the French government who justly considered that such a dictionary, if well executed, would be of national importance.

The dictionary is preceded, in volume one, by an elaborate, long (upto column 544) separate essay on the "État général du commerce de l'Europe" (and followed by other essays on the continents of Africa, Asia and the Americas).
