Du Gouvernement Civil, où l'on traitte de l'origine, des fondemens, de la nature, du pouvoir, & des fins des sociétez politiques. Traduit de l'Anglois.
Amsterdam: Abraham Wolfgang 1691 - woodcut printer's device on title, bound without the final blank, 1 or 2 leaves a little spotted or slightly browned, pp. [xii], 321, 12mo, contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt in compartments, red lettering piece, headcaps defective, corners a little worn, 2 early ownership inscriptions on title, good. First edition in French, the translation traditionally attributed to David Mazel, a Huguenot pastor living in Holland. The text consists of the second treatise i.e. Yolton 29, omitting the first chapter - 'it is suprising to note that all translations of this work up to 1800 were only of the second treatise' (Yolton). The impact of Locke's Treatises of Government on the philosophes has been much studied, see for example Ross Hutchinson's Locke in France 1688-1734 (Voltaire Foundation, 1991), or, as Sarah Hutton has it (British Philosophy in the Seventeenth Century, p. 207) 'Locke may be considered an Enlightenment philosophe avant la lettre.' This is quite a scarce book: COPAC records just 4 copies - not in the BL. (Yolton 46)
