The Philosophy of History. By M. De Voltaire.
London: Printed for L. Allcock, 1766. - First English edition. 8vo. Full calf, covers ruled in gilt, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. 316 pp. Some scuffing to edges and hinges, ownership signature and stamp at the head of the title page; a clean very good copy in general. Translated from the French work published in 1765: "La Philosophie de L'Histoire. Par feu l'Abbe Bazin." The book was published in French under the Bazin pseudonym to protect Voltaire from persecution, but this English edition appeared the following year under his own name. As in the Mcgill copy (Patrick Lee Collection), this copy has the page number '44' printed upside-down, and page number '93' printed as '39'. There was at least one edition in French published in London in 1765, but this 1766 edition appears to be the first in English. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
