ARGENS (Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, marquis d')
chez Pierre Gosse, 1751. 149 lettres de 8 pp. chacune, relié en 5 vol. in-12, veau havane marbré, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Deuxième édition augmentée. Ecrit périodique par Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, marquis d'Argens, qui vise à compléter le panorama des civilisations lancé par les Lettres juives ; il s'agit désormais de « comparer les moeurs des différentes nations de l'Europe avec celles des Chinois et des pays d'Asie ». « Avec les Lettres chinoises, marquées de plus d'érudition, mais de moins de vivacité et de fantaisie que les Lettres juives, se clôt la série des lettres périodiques du marquis d'Argens. La collection périodique a l'intérêt de révéler un publiciste attaché aux principales revendications des Lumières « digne ennemi du fanatisme », « superstionis destructor », pour reprendre les termes de Voltaire ». Le tome I s'ouvre sur deux lettres aux éditeurs du Journal Helvétique. Petites épidermures avec manque de cuir sur les tomes I, III et IV. Sgard, 799.
