Eclaircissements demandés à M. N**, sur les Principes Economiques, & sur ses projets de législation; au nom des Propriétaires fonciers & des Cultivateurs François.
I: Rare first separate edition, first published in the Nouvelles Ephémérides, volume V, 1775, ‘extrait des nouvelles éphémérides économiques’ printed on verso of the cancel title. Daire considers this work to be the finest polemic of the Physiocratic school. Written following the publication of Necker’s Sur la législation et le commerce des grains (1775), Baudeau here presents, in magnificent style, the arguments of the Physiocrats against Necker’s theories.
VAUBAN, Sébastien Le Prestre de (1633-1707), Marshal of France and military engineer.
Manuscript certificate signed by Vauban (‘Le Mal. de Vauban’) certifying the brave service and injury in action of one Captain Beaufort.
In his capacity as ‘commissaire general des fortifications de France, gouvernour de la citadelle de Lisle’, Vauban here certifies that Captain Beaufort, an engineer in the Dauphin’s regiment who had served the king well in the Dutch campaign of 1672 and then at Oudenaarde, is unfit for service following an injury to his right hand by a grenade at the siege of Besançon.
