First edition, first printing, of this fundamental thesis on the origins of physiocracy, the French economic theory defining economic wealth by the value of land agriculture and development, starting in 1756 when Quesnay produced his first articles.

This in-depth analysis stops at the year 1770, English translation "because that is the last year of the Choiseul ministry, and the last year in which the Economists, as an organised party, have had a direct and continuous action on the opinion and the government" (avant-propos, p. VI).
