first editions, rare both Full mottled calf contemporary. Smooth back 4 irons. Parts of title and volume number in red morocco. Triple fillet border on covers. Little lack in mind. Lack the upper joint head. Upper joint split tail. Slight lack tail. Friction. Gin's work is primarily a defense of the monarchy (as the natural form of government) against Montesquieu's theories and those of Mably, but beyond this premise, the set is remarkable for its economic considerations, gin making agriculture and industry the key elements in the economic health. The author strives in history and examples from various nations such as China irrefutably prove his theories. The work of Voltaire is a clever reflection on relativity laws, including their injustice. Voltaire asks each category of crime (theft, crime, heresy, wizards ...) and laws that have been established. One of the last works of Voltaire animated by the zeal to convince his contemporaries on the urgency of reform laws. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
