Reforming FranceFirst 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.
Octavo (189 x 112 mm). Contemporary sheep, rebacked with original spine laid down, spine lettered in gilt on calf label, gilt floral motifs to compartments, marbled endpapers, red edges.
Page of contemporary manuscript notes on verso of front endpaper, pencilled manuscript annotations, erasure of certain words on pp. 309-10 corresponding to other copies and probably by the printer. Terminal errata leaves present. Recornered, minor crease to spine, contents crisp. A very good copy.
