DETAILS

Gilt tooled leather bound books with marbled boards.  Contains four volumes bound as two.

Written in French.

Marie Roch Louis Reybaud (August 15, 1799 - October 28, 1879), French writer, political economist and politician, was born at Marseille.

After travelling in the Levant and in India, he settled in Paris in 1829. Besides writing for the Radical press, he edited the Histoire scientifique et militaire de lexpdition franaise en Egypte in ten volumes (1830-36) and Dumont d'Urville's Voyage au tour du monde (1833).

In 1840 he published Etudes sur les reformateurs on socialistes modernes which gained him the Montyon prize (1841) and a place in the Acadmie des sciences morales et politiques (1850). In 1843 he published Jrme Paturot a la recherche d'une position sociale, a clever social satire that had a prodigious success. In 1846 he abandoned his democratic views, and was elected liberal deputy for Marseille.

His Jrme Paturot a la recherche de 10 meilleure des republiques (1848) was a satire on the new republican ideas. After the coup d'tat of 1849 he ceased to take part in public life, and devoted himself entirely to the study of political economy. To this period belong his La Vie de l'emploi (1855); L'Industrie en Europe (1856); and Etudes sur le rgime de nos manufactures (1859).

CONDITION

The bindings are tight and firm and all covers are firmly attached.  There is some wear to the extremities including rubbing to the edges and boards.  There is also some rubbing to the spines and the second spine label on the second volume is missing.  Internally the books are generally clean and bright apart from some spotting in places.

What Our Customers Say...

Michael, UK

My book was delivered safely not five minutes ago and I am delighted with it. At the age of almost 79 my years of enjoyment may be slightly limited, but one of my six grandsons, at the age of 11, is showing the same interest in books that I have had since first I learned to read, and in due course he will inherit some of these old gems.

Bo, Thailand

I bought the oldest book that I have ever purchased, a 1793 edition of John Gay's "Fables," from Rooke, and was extremely pleased.
