OBSERVATIONS SUR LE MÉMOIRE JUSTIFICATIF DE LA COUR DE LONDRES.
Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, . 1780 - 84pp. Large engraved ornament on titlepage. Original self-wrappers, string- tied, as issued. Wear to center portion of wrapper spine. A few light fox marks. Else a lovely copy, in original condition. An important work on French assistance to the Americans during the Revolution, written by Conrad Gérard de Rayneval. Rayneval's tract is a response to Edward Gibbon's MEMOIRE JUSTICATIF., composed in French and first published in 1779. Gibbon's work was prompted by a French justification of their actions early in the Revolution. Rayneval continues the debate, and his work is an important contribution to the issue of diplomatic recognition by neutrals of seceded colonies and revolutionary governments. Rayneval served as a secretary to the French Foreign Minister, the Comte de Vergennes. Another work with the same title, but not identical, was also published by Beaumarchais. OCLC locates ten copies. Not in Howes. SABIN 56580. OCLC 6469331.
