Essai sur les monnoies, ou, Réflexions sur le rapport entre l'argent et les denrées.
Paris J.-B Coignard et De Bure 1746 - First edition. 4to., xxi, [3], 220, 188 pp., contemporary mottled calf gilt, red morocco label, neat repairs to joints, an excellent example. Nicolas-François Dupré de Saint-Maur (1695, Paris – 30 November 1774), French economist and statistician, in this, his major work, provides a treatment of European coinage and relationships between the price of wheat, wine, oil, meat, wood and other commodities and salaries paid from 1002 to 1742. It also tried to demonstrate that food prices had increased twelvefold since AD 1 and was one of the first works to introduce John Locke's ideas into France. Adam Smith praised its food-price statistics in his Wealth of Nations and Buffon used its mortality statistics in his Histoire naturelle de l'homme. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
