About this Item

[2], v-xii, 268 p., 2 folded leaves of plates: tables; 16 cm. Signatures: *6(-1) A-L12 M2 (12mo). Remains of full calf with gilt-tooled title on spine. Modern box covered in maroon cloth with gilt-tooled title on spine and front section. Title vignette (printer's device?). Woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces, and initials. Circular stamp of Dickinson College Library on title page (sold at an auction of items withdrawn from the library). The author, Sébastien Le Prestre Vauban (1633-1707), is considered one of the greatest military engineers of all time. In this treatise he used statistical data to support his argument that all taxes should be repealed and replaced by a standard 10% tax on all agricultural output and on all income from trade and manufactures. After the work was condemned by the royal government, he attempted to reclaim all the copies that he had given away. He was fairly successful--WorldCat shows only one copy dated 1707. In Fair Condition: lacking 2 leaves of plates?; lacking front board; back board is detached; lacking much of leather and gilt from spine; lacking leaf preceding title page; title page is lightly soiled; minor loss at a few lower page corners; light soiling of a few corners. Box is clean and bright. Bookseller Inventory # 004181
