Réflexions sur le commerce des bleds
Londres, n.n. 1776 - Avril 1776. One volume in 8vo ; pp. (2) title, XV, (1), (2) errata, 221, (1) ; contemporary (around 1795) calf, extremities a bit rubbed, flat spine richly gilt with contrasting gilt lettering-piece, endpapers a bit browned, a few leaves slightly foxed or browned, else clean and crisp, a very good copy. First edition. Condorcet was a friend of Turgot. In 1774 he wrote a short pamphlet of 29 pages with the title Lettres sur le commerce des grains to support Turgot’s legislation freeing the price of grain. When Necker published his attack Sur la legislation et le commerce des grains in 1775 Condorcet quickly responded in the same year with his Du commerce des bleds: pour servir à la réfutation de l’ouvrage “Sur la législation et le commerce des grains, where he dismantles Necker’s reasoning, and defends Turgot’s program on 96 pages. The above work of 221 pages published one year later takes up the 1775 arguments but gives a much broader view of the reasons for and the advantages of free corn trade.
