LAVOISIER (Antoine-Laurent)
Paris, Imprimerie nationale, 1791. In-8, demi-maroquin, pièce de titre de veau rouge, double filet doré en tête en pied (rel. Devauchelle), (1) f. de titre, 48 p. Edition originale de cet essai fondateur dans l'histoire de l'économie politique, de la statistique économique et sociale ainsi que de l'arithmétique politique et ses applications, qui fait de Lavoisier le précurseur de la statistique nationale. Cette synthèse contient tout ce qui subsiste de son ouvrage 'De la Richesse territoriale', resté inachevé et dont le manuscrit a été perdu dans la tourmente révolutionnaire. Il constitue la base de l'arithmétique politique moderne, de la science économique et de sa méthode empirique de calcul. "La première étude moderne des ressources démographiques et économiques de la nation. Lavoisier y fait œuvre de novateur, demande la création d'un bureau national de la statistique et met en place une comptabilité nationale: c'est la naissance de l'économie quantitative" (J.-P. Poirier, 'Lavoisier'). Cf. J.-C. Perrot, 'Histoire intellectuelle de l'économie politique; XVII-XVIIIe siècle'. Paris, 1992, p. 377-423. (Duveen & Klickstein, 'Lavoisier', n°264. Einaudi, 3272. INED, 2690. Martin & Walter, III, 19846. Manque à Kress et Goldsmiths). Quelques rousseurs. Très bon exemplaire, très bien relié.

HOMER
London: Printed for J. Johnson..., 1791. FIRST EDITION OF THIS TRANSLATION. 2 volumes. 4to, 293 x 224 mms., pp. xvii [xviii blank, xix - xxvi list of subscribers, xxvii Errata, xxviii blank], 658;[iv], 483 [484 blank], contemporary calf, red leather labels; joints cracked with rear joint of volume 2 tender, other general wear to binding, with various nicks and scratches but a goodish copy, with the bookplate of Alfred A. Johnston on the front paste-down end-paper of each volume. Cowper (1731 - 1800) spent six years preparing this translation, because he had found Pope's translation to be unfaithful to the original. He worked steadily at his task translating 40 lines a day, and by 13 January 1786, he had completed a draft of the Iliad. Interrupted by llness and other distractions, he was unable to continue his work until 1787, and he sent his completed manuscript to Johnson in September, 1790. Johnson paid him £1000 for the translation. Reviews were mixed. John Parsons in The Monthly Review was displeased with Cowper's "passive and unlimited obedience to his author," adding that th "giant strength of Homer" was somtimes subverted by the "feebleness of a pygmy." The Monthly Review, or at least its reviewer, revised that opinion in 1797, when it reviewed Gilbert Wakefield's edition of Pope's Home, stating that Cowper's translation had "superiority over all its predecessors." Russell 276.
