Descripción

A Amsterdam, Chés Balthes Boekholt, pour Jean van Gorp, 1682 (Paris, EDHIS, 1973). With frontispiece. (16), 192 pp. Small 8vo. Imitation leather. INED 2786; Kress S.1542; not in Goldsmiths; not in Einaudi; Conlon, Prélude, 1043. Well executed reprint of the first (and only?) edition of this extremely rare work, reprinted in a limited edition of 250 copies and 30 copies not destined for the trade. 'Ouvrage plein d'intérêt dans lequel on trouve toute une théorie du commerce et de l'aménagement du territoire. L'éloge qui y est fait des grandes villes (sans elles, les richesses, la bonté, les forces et la gloire d'un État sont imperceptibles; leur cause finale et essentielle étant l'utilité publique, elles doivent être très opulentes), contraste avec les critiques qu'on leur adressera si souvent au siècle suivant' (INED).The author studies the interest, utility and influence of the large cities, how they were formed, their size and location in an area, and the indispensable institutions of a city: librairies, academies, gardens, banks and the stock-market ('bourses'). The author is against luxury, in favour of freedom of trade, the nobility should get active in commerce and pleads for social care (hospitals, orphanages, etc) as a means to prevent mendicity and crime.The word 'population' is being used in this work, it appears on page 142, while its earliest use was dated around 1748. The word is here used in the meaning of population and not in the meaning of number of inhabitants. N° de ref. de la librería 7266
