About this Item

12mo, 211, (v) pp. Bound in contemporary calf, spine stamped in gilt. Some rubbed and scuffed, bookplate of Jurist Robert Hallgarten, contemporary name on title-page. Barbier I, 623 (1755 ed); Supercheries I, 938; Higgs 1594; Lichtenberger pp. 104-107. An unprecedented and very important exposition of a rationalist communism, advocating complete abolishment of private property and complete state control of production and consumption. It was if not completely ignored, it was strongly rejected by Morelly's contemporaries. By the end of the eighteenth century Babeuf referred to it with great respect, and in the nineteenth century many socialist and communist writers have acknowledged their indebtness to Morelly, including among others Fourier, Cabet, Proudhon, Louis Blanc and Fredrick Engels. Morelly was born about 1715 and at least for a time lived in Vitry-le-François. This was originally issued in 1756 and for the longest time was attributed to Diderot. Bookseller Inventory # 30130
