Notes

First edition of Schmid's magnum opus. A councillor of the Saxe-Weimar ducal court, Schmid (1720-1805) was in contact with many of the leading philosophes, including Voltaire, Diderot and d'Alembert. His economic writings were heavily influenced by physiocratic ideas, promoting agriculture as the basis of the nation's wealth and criticising luxury.
