ChezJean Hofhoudt, à Amsterdam 1729, in-8 (12x17,5cm), (2) VI 164pp. (4), relié.

First edition, rare. Copy weapons hit tail-Antoine René de Voyer d'Argenson, Marquis de Paulmy, who was one of the greatest bibliophiles of the eighteenth century and whose library was the origin of the Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal. Full speckled brown sheepskin contemporary. Back tooled raised florets 4. Part of title in red morocco. Caps threadbare. Upper joint open tail 1cm. 3 corners bumped and bare. Although the book is presented solely as a satirical story today with key and an allegory of the Regency, all the figures are in oriental names; Mahmoud is a true oriental tale and contains many notes on the history of the caliphs and the manners and customs of the Arabs; Mahmoud also contains no recipes in vogue in Europe writing a story, but his writing borrows its methods in historical narrative, we see the evolution of a conqueror. Work of the economist Jean-François Melon, author of trade policy test. Label: Geoffrey J. Aspin. Rara books. Little Sutton, cheshire. England. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information!
