Principes économiques de Louis XII et du Cardinal d'Amboise,
de Henri IV et du Duc de Sully sur l'administration des finances, opposés aux systemes des docteurs modernes; [bound with:] DU BUAT NANCAY. Remarques d'un Francais, ou Examen Impartial du Livre de M. Necker sur l'administration des finances de france, pour servir de correctif et de supplement a son ouvrage.[Paris]; Geneva: 1785 Stock Code: 127446
First editions of these two commentaries on Necker. The first upholds the two great finance ministers of France's past, Cardinal d'Amboise and the Duke of Sully, as superior to Necker in their financial administration, and as offering models for France's current financial predicaments. The second seeks to serve as a corrective to the arguments outlined in the treatise Examen impartial du systeme de M. Necker, generally attributed to Guerineau de Saint-Peravi and hostile to Necker, which had been published the same year.
Octavo (183 x 117 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, green morocco label to spine, smooth spine gilt to compartments, marbled endpapers and edges.
Half-titles present. Light wear to tips, a few small blemishes to contents, some light creases to pages, else a very good, attractive copy.
