Tree-calf leather binding with red and black leather title labels on spine, edges have gilt detailing. Copper engraved portrait frontispiece of author in volume I. INCLUDING 7 FOLDING MAPS BY THOMAS KITCHIN SENIOR. Raynal's seminal work on the relations between the European colonial powers and their far-off conquests and domains. Originally published anonymously in 1770 in a shorter version, the book expresses strong sentiments against despotism, slavery, the established religious order, the Inquisition, and the colonial system in general. It was suppressed by the French monarchy. This work went through 55 editions during the first 30 years of publication and was translated into 5 languages. The book caused an outcry in some quarters because of its treament of religion and its advocacy of the popular right to revolt, amongst other things. Raynal's condemnation of slavery skilfully combined a detailed critique of Anglo-American territorial expansionism and British imperialism and became a key work in the debate over the abolition of slavery that it did much to spur. Some loss to spine ends, rubbed, corners show wear. Weight is approx. 13 lbs, additional shipping and handling will apply. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 007466
