Théorie critique de l’impot …
First and only edition of Walras’ second published book on economics and an important early testimonial to his profound admiration for, and intellectual identification with, his father. In the lengthy preface, he reviews the ideas contained in the works of Auguste Walras, including the concept of ‘rarety’ which was to influence Walras’ formulation of marginal utility, and then relates this intellectual patrimony to his own essay on taxation which follows a discussion of the international congress on taxation in Lausanne in 1860.

BIBLE FOR HUGUENOTS IN ENGLANDIN AN ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY BINDING [BIBLE.]
La Bible, qui est toute la Sainte Escriture du Vieil et du Nouveau Testament. Autrement, l’ancienne et la nouvelle alliance. Le tout reveu et conferé sur les textes hebreux et grecs. Avec les Pseaumes de David, mis en rime françoise par Cl. Marot et Theod. de Beze.
First complete edition of the Bible in French to be printed in England, in a fine Restoration binding. This Bible, in the French Geneva version, was published less than two years after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes (22 October 1685) which saw about 50,000 French Protestant refugees move to England (the word ‘refugee’ entered the English language at this time). The present copy is without the Apocrypha sometimes found at the end of the Old Testament (as is the Bible Society copy; see Darlow & Moule).
