Essai sur la nature du commerce en général
Londres, chez Fletcher Gyles 1756 - . Three parts in one volume in 12mo ; pp. 427, (5) table des chapitres ; contemporary marbled calf, raised bands, spine richly gilt in compartments with red gilt lettering-piece, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges, front endpaper verso with a few annotations, front fly leaf with paper label Biblioteca di L. Dal Pane, upper margin of title page with private stamp Prof. Luigi Dal Pane repeated at upper margin of page 10 and at last page, endpapers and fly leafs browned, age-toning in places, else clean and crisp, in all a very good copy. Rare second edition from the library of Professor Luigi Dal Pane (1903-1979) who was a specialist in Italian economic history of the 17th, 18th and 19th century. Both the author’s life and the history of his work are unusual. Cantillon, a banker in France of Irish origin, was murdered 1734. His Essai was written about 1730 and circulated in manuscript. After its posthumous publication in 1755 and 1756 (in French, not in English) it was lost sight of until it was rediscovered by Jevons. Cantillon was strongly influenced by W. Petty; he in turn influenced the physiocrats. His Essai is considered as the most systematic statement of economic principles before the Wealth of Nations.
