Abbé de SAINT PIERRE

Les Rêves d'un homme de bien, qui peuvent être réalisés, ou les vues utiles et pratiquables de M. l'abbé de Saint-Pierre, choisies dans ce grand nombre de projets singuliers, dont le bien public étoit le principe.

Chez la Veuve Duchesne., à Paris 1775, grd. in-12 (10x17,5cm), xij, 502pp. (2)., relié.


First edition of this book published by Alletz containing a selection of reflections, thoughts of various extracts from works of the Abbe de Saint-Pierre, renowned economist considered utopian. Full glossy blond calf and marbled contemporary. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. Marbled edges. Good copy. Charles Irenee Castel de Saint-Pierre (1658-1743) was a French philosopher and writer. It is considered a precursor of the Enlightenment because of the new ideas he divulged. He attended assiduously salons of Madame de Lafayette and Mrs. Lambert. It is still famous for its project of universal peace among nations, probably the first project of European unification, which inspired not only Rousseau, but the creators of the UN. The book brings together political, economic considerations, legal, education and training, and many other areas, but always within the framework of a thought reflecting on the organization of a society. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
