Paris, Librairie de Guillaumin et Cie 1864 - One volume in 4to; pp. LXXII, CXXXIX, (1), 83, (1); contemporary brown half sheep over marbled boards, raised bands, some gilding to spine and gilt lettering, extremities rubbed, marbled endpapers, front fly leaf with short tear, some foxing in places, else a clean copy with wide margins. First and rare edition of these first critical and authoritative Latin and French versions based on the manuscripts from the Bibliothèque Impériale. Nicolas Oresme, bishop of Lisieux (died 1382) wrote for his pupil Charles V the treatise "De origine, natura, jure et mutationibus monetarum" in which he developed the theory of money in a clear and simple way. He clearly condemned the debasement of money. His view fell into oblivion until W. Roscher's lecture "Ein großer Nationalökonom des 14. Jahrhunderts". Around 1526 the famous astronomer Nicolas Copernic wrote his little treatise "De monetae cudendae ratione" on the demand of Sigismond I, King of Poland. He also criticzes the debasement as well as the rights of the aristocracy. He supports concentration and simplification of the monetary system. Einaudi 4141, Menger c. 686, Cossa pp. 165, 168 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
