A Londres, (Paris), 1750. (4), vii, (1), 255, (1) pp. 8vo. Contemporary marbled calf, spine gilt, small damage to head of spine and to lower compartment. Conlon 50:376. First French edition. The original work was published in 1749. Bolingbroke, as a speaker, had never been equalled. Pitt is reported to have said that he would rather have recovered one of those speeches than the best compositions of antiquity. It has often been remarked that his writings are substantially orations. Their style has been greatly admired. Chesterfield calls the style 'infinitely superior to any one's' (DNB, xvii, 618 ff.) Henry Bolingbroke must certainly be considered one of the builders of the English party system. His philosophical method is to his detractors a rather barren kind of rationalism, to his admirers an appeal to earthy common sense against theology and metaphysics. At any rate the young Voltaire found in Bolingbroke's work -and conversation- an attack on revealed religion and a defense of a natural order obvious to philosophers if not to the unenlightened. - Part of half-title cut out, probably not taking away text, and on the title-page the word 'roy' in 'roy patriote' has been cut away. Apart from this an good copy with generous margins. N° de ref. de la librería 19286
