Reforming France

First edition of Combe's proposals to the National Assembly to reform France's society and economy. The work offers an analysis of the present state of France and criticises Necker's policies, offering instead the author's own alternatives. Uncommon, with WorldCat listing 12 copies worldwide, with Library Hub adding the British Library copy.
