Contemporary calf, red edges; (clean; calf slightly scuffed). First Edition. Rousseau’s epistolary novel, later known as "Julie, or the New Héloïse," was first published in 1761 by Marc-Michel Rey in Amsterdam. The novel’s title (translated "Letters from two lovers living in a small town at the foot of the Alps") is a nod to the history of Héloïse d’Argenteuil and Pierre Abélard, a medieval story of passion and Christian renunciation. The novel was initially put on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum. Although Rousseau wrote it as a novel, a philosophical theory about authenticity, namely "secret principles" and feelings, and being constituent of one’s core identity, permeated through it. Rousseau explored autonomy and authenticity as moral values and in turn created in Julie a story of temptation, sin and redemption that was easily relatable. According to Historian Robert Darnton, there were at least 70 editions in print before 1800. So immensely popular, publishers could not print copies fast enough so they rented the book out by the day and even by the hour. The work stirred a strong emotional response from readers and had raised Rousseau to prominence as an author. Worldcat locates 6 copies of this edition in North America.
