It contributed to his return as directeur-général des finances in 1788, after his dismissal in 1781. It is a valuable book ?to those who would study how the finances of France were managed in the last days of the old regime.? (Palgrave 1894-1901). ?The work was extremely popular (it is said to have sold 80.000 copies, despite being in three volumes) and served to promote the author's reputation.? (Carpenter, Economic bestsellers, p. 23). See Krees, Carpenter, Goldsmith, Einaudi.
