About this Item

Lyon, 1792. Second edition of Mably's collected works. A very nice set in its original binding. 8vos, quarter gilt-decorated leather over marbled paper. A very sound set with excellent contents. Deaccessioned from a university library, with small unobtrusive stamps on front pastedowns. Some of Mably's most important works were published posthumously in the first edition of his collected works in 1789. His most known contribution is Entretiens de Phocion, a dialogue first published in 1763, which introduced themes of his mature thought. However, there are two works published posthumously which subsequently were to have a profound effect on the early deliberations on the assembly of the Estates-General of 1789 - an enlarged version of an earlier work (1765) 'Histoire de France' and 'Des droits et des devoirs du citoyen', written in 1758 but Mably held back the manuscript from publication and arranged for his executor to have it published after his death. These writings are present in this collection, along with the rest of his work. A very nice complete set in its original binding. Tres bon etat. Bookseller Inventory # SET0518
