DELISLE DE SALES (Jean-Baptiste IZOUARD, dit).
1791. Cette utopie est parfois présentée comme la suite de la Philosophie de la Nature, cosmogonie vitaliste que Delisle de Sales publia en 1769. "Il fallait que l'auteur de cette République fût bien persuadé que son livre n'était pas fait pour sa génération, puisqu'il demanda expressément qu'il ne fut imprimé que l'an dix-huit cent. En avançant ce terme de dix ans, je jette peut-être la pomme de discorde, parmi toutes ces divinités Plébeyennes, qui se disputent le droit de gouverner la patrie naissante qu'elles organisent : mais du moins j'aurai eu le courage de faire germer, avant le temps, des vérités hardies que l'amour raisonné des hommes pouvait seul inspirer : après avoir lutté vingt ans contre la haine des despotes, j'en lutterai peut-être vingt autres contre la haine des factieux ; et j'aurai vécu" (Préface). "Delisle de Sales partage avec d'autres illuminés du même type - Restif, Fourier, Poe - une superbe assurance (...) Les affirmations les plus étourdissantes y sont les plus gratuites. (...) Et cependant son influence a été grande ; Fabre d'Olivet reprend sa doctrine point par point ; Nerval, Hugo y ont trouvé une source d'inspiration. C'est que Delisle de Sales s'abandonne au rêve avec naïveté, et de ce courant émerge une série d'images primordiales qui éveillent de profondes résonances" (hélènes Tuzet, Le Cosmos et l'imagination). Ce livre occupe une place d'honneur dans l'histoire de la littérature conjecturale puisqu'il donne naissance au genre uchronique.

This edition is first British printing since 1777. It blanks out all the censored sections. The British didn't publish an uncensored edition until mid 1800s. An unusual binding in that a sheet of blank, laid paper has been inserted between each text page with the result that the book is 180 pages long. Three of the laid in leaves have extensive, pencilled anti Paine commentary, three others with just a few sentences. Most of commentary quite legible. Likely written in early 1800s as the long "s" used twice, "chuce" for "chose", "republick" for "republic", words abbreviated by using super script final letters & capitalizing many words internal in a sentence. The following pencilled comment faces p6: "Mr P always avoids with care Reasoning from Facts & the History of Mankind & neglects all together the Authority of the Patriarchs from the first Man to the Dispersion". This faces p23: "All this Reasoning is ably refuted by Mr Shuckford, tho unintentionally". Extensive commentary faces pp16 & 24, the last sentence of which reads: "His Simile is as Contemptible as his Skepticism." Writer is unsigned.
