Second edition to be authorized by Belloni, (first, 1750) – the first edition to include the author’s considerations on ‘imaginary money’ (pp. 135-154) – of a work notable for its argument in favour of restrictions on the export of money by the Vatican banker Girolamo Belloni (1688–1760). The work enjoyed great success: it received seventeen editions between 1750 and 1788, was translated into several languages (an English edition appeared in 1752) and led to the ennoblement of Belloni by Benedict XIV.

WALRAS, Léon.

Études d’économie sociale (Théorie de la Répartition de la Richesse sociale).

This, the second, definitive edition differs from the first (1896) in containing the ‘Souvenirs du Congrès de Lausanne’. The congress on taxation in Lausanne in 1860, at which Walras read a paper, was a climacteric in his career. In the audience was Louis Ruchonnet, who later became chief of the department of education of the Canton de Vaud and, in 1870, founded a chair of political economy at the faculty of law of the University of Lausanne which he offered to Walras. Though students of law were hardly accessible to innovations in mathematical economics, Walras found in Lausanne the peace and security that enabled him to produce his most important work.
