About this Item: Se trouve a Paris chez la Veuve Duchesne, Chez l'auteur/chez Monory libr 1775-1774, 1775. Condition: BE. A Londre/ A LA HAYE, cartonnage de l'éditeur; in-8, 179-164-184 pp. Remarque : TROIS TEXTES DANS LA MÊME RELIURE - reliure plein veau dos manque la coiffe du haut coins usagé trace de pliure sur le dos mors un peu fendu état correct de la reliure. - 1773. Fragments sur l'Inde, et sur le Général F N.p. (Paris?): 1773. (4)162 8vo, 19th-century hcalf (a trifle rubbed).A rare edition, probably printed in Paris on paper from Rouen; a paginary reprint of the Geneva first edition published earlier the same year, but omitting a final section on the Verron trial. This is one of many works written by Voltaire at Ferney in his eightieth year. His object was an analysis of the French presence in India, in particular the events leading up to the execution of General Lally after the loss of Pondicherry to the British in 1761. Voltaire's interest in the affair arose from his sense of the injustices inherent in French criminal procedure. Lally was tried five years after the fact, on vague charges which hinted darkly at treason; but he was in truth a scapegoat for mismanagement and the loss of colonial power. The case of the comte de Morangiés, which occupies pp. 163-184, is unrelated, but also involves the inadequacies of the French legal system; the issue in that case was the custom of pre-trial imprisonment, which extended to cases of all kinds and made it difficult for an accused to defend himself - texte en bon état sauf l4/6 première feuilles manque sur un coin- La Nouvelle Clémentine ou Lettres de Henriette de Berville -LEONARD Nicolas Germain - né à la Guadeloupe en 1744 - N.p.
