L'homme en societé, ou nouvelles vues politiques et économiques pour porter la population au plus haut degré en France.
Amsterdam chez Marc Michel Rey 1763 - Two vols. in one, 8vo., xii + 262 and (4) + 280pp., including the half-title to vol.I and the preliminary blank to vol.II, contemporary French mottled calf, spine ornately gilt, the binding generally worn but with some restoration, red edges. A good copy and internally fine and crisp with no marks of previous ownership. First edition. Goldsmiths 9831. Kress 6105. INED 2117. Higgs 3036. Not in Mattioli, Einaudi or Sraffa. But for a scholarly commentary see Spengler, French predecessors of Malthus,> pp.86-90. This was De la Plombanie's most important work, containing almost subversive and, for the time, modern ideas, for which reason the author had his work published anonymously outside France. The author's near socialist views are confirmed by his bold statement that: 'L'agriculture, les arts mécaniques, le commerce intérieur & extérieur, la finance, la populaation, les forces de terre & de mer, sont les véritables objets qui doivent fixer toute l'attention du gouvernement' [I, p.14]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
