Descripción

First edition of Mandeville's last important book, the sequel to his Fable of the Bees (Part I 1714, Part II 1729), a work so infamous that its author's contemporaries restyled his name 'Man-devil'. It comprises four long dialogues between the two main interlocutors of the second part of the Fable, Horatio and Cleomenes, the latter of whom was Mandeville's own mouthpiece. 8vo, [ii], xi, [ix], 240 pp., contemporary blind-tooled calf, rebacked, armorial bookplate of John Powell Esqr. on pastedown, title-page with early ownership inscription crossed through, pages fresh and clean, a very good copy.
