COQUEREL, Nicolas de.

Discours de la perte que les François reçoiuent en la permission d’exposer les monnoyes estrangeres. Et l’unique moyen pour empescher que les bonnes & fortes monnoyes, à fabriquer aux coins & Armes du Roy, ne piussent estre à jamais falsifiées rognées, surhaussées de prix, ny transportées hors le Royaume …

First edition, scarce, of this work on monetary policy and coinage by Nicolas de Coquerel, general de monnaies at the court of Henri IV. Coquerel begins his work with a history of human society, in order to show the centrality of money and monetary policy to the State. Arthur E. Monroe describes his plans as similar in nature to those of Bodin and Scaruffi, in this case to make all French coinage based on divisions of the ‘Henrique d’or’ (Monetary theory before Adam Smith, p. 93).

PELLISSERY, Roch-Antoine de.

Eloge politique de Colbert: qui n’a point été présenté à l’Academie Française pour le prix de la St. Louis 1773.

First edition. This work provides a detailed examination of Colbert’s financial and economic work, with detailed information about the situation in France since his ministry.
