  2. Eloge historique de M. Quesnay.

    Eloge historique de M. Quesnay.

    Bound last with three other works.
    Very rare first edition in book form of this obituary of Quesnay, which first appeared in the Nouvelles ephémérides économiques, in May 1775. Another edition, by Cailleau, appeared later the same year. Albon here gives an outline of physiocratic teaching, and points out Quesnay's influential distinction between the natural and the legal right, something that had been confounded by earlier writers, such as Grotius, Pufendorf, and Vattel.
