La Parfaite Intelligence du Commerce, by Malisset d'Hertereau, 2 volumes, first edition, 1785 La Parfaite intelligence du commerce, où se trouvent les Connaissances et les Renseignemens les plus utiles à diverses Classes de Citoyens, & particulièrement aux amateurs, Négocians, Navigateurs, Commissaires, Agens, Courtiers de Commerce, Fabricans, Artisans, Commis, Gens d'affaires, &c. Le tout distribué de manière à faciliter les recherches des Lecteurs. Published Lami, Paris, 1785. Important and very scarce 2 volume set detailing Franch commerce of the period. The volumes cover modern geography, a dictionary containing useful information on 1,000 cities and places, an essential dictionary of commercial terms, and many tables and facts of all aspects of trade with detailed tables of information on commodities such as grains, gold, diamonds and the slave trade. There is a table of the slave cargo of the ship, the St Andrew. Overall a good set, but with substantial wear and damages (see photographs). The 2 volumes are both bound in contemporary speckled calf, and although not an exact match this is presumably as issued. Both volumes are signed by the author on title page. Volume 1: Cover is rubbed and worn with small pieces absent from extremities. Head and tail of spine are worn. Spine has 5 raised bands with burgundy title label and black volume label. Marbled endpapers. Text is clear but suffers from water damage to the first half of the book. xii + 732pp + ii. Volume 2: Cover is rubbed and worn with small pieces absent from extremities. Head and tail mof spine are worn away considerably. Spine has 5 raised bands with tan title label and green volume label. Plain endpapers. Text is actually very good overall save for minor worming to various pages. 500pp + xii + 64pp. Dimensions: Volume 1: 212mm high x 135mm wide x 55mm deep Volume 2: 215mm high x 142mm wide x 55mm deep.
