2 volumes, octavo (198 × 124 mm). Contemporary catspaw roan, green morocco label, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, board edges gilt, marbled endpapers, green edges. Boards a little scuffed, with a little surface worm damage, occasional minor foxing. An excellent set. 11 folding plates (2 maps, of which 1 is hand-coloured). First edition of this economic utopia. Published anonymously, as were many of Goyon de la Plombanie's works. Foreshadowing the effects of increased production on society, the results of industrialisation, urban migration and overcrowding, he proposed the use of cartography to document natural borders and indicate ownership and the improvement of road transport with the use of steam engines and a form of locomotive - technical advances well ahead of his time. Similarly, his fiscal proposals, witholding tax, land and property taxes, were all introduced after the French Revolution. Little is known about him (d. 1808); he was one of the editors of the Journal Economique, and after an army career turned his attention to economic questions. He wrote several works in which he denounced the insufficient supply of money and the increase in interest rates, always proposing reform of agriculture and economics. INED 2116.
