Londres, (Paris), 1786. With engraved portrait. iv, (5)-287 pp. 8vo. Modern half morocco, spine gilt with gilt lettering, marbled boards. Kress B.1031; not in Goldsmiths; not in Einaudi; INED 1186. One of four different editions, all published in the year 1786, the year of first publication, all with identical imprint, and one of two editions with the notes printed at the appropriate places in the book instead of being printed at the end of the book. This work is not so much a biography of the great French statesman and economist, but rather an exposé of Turgot's educational, political and economic ideas, and published a few years after the other contemporary work about Turgot by Dupont de Nemours. Condorcet in sketching Turgot's financial operations, largely approved of his economic ideas and those of the physiocrats. In the beginning of the second part one finds Condorcet's early attempt to apply mathematics to economics: Condorcet expresses Turgot's fiscal theories in mathematical terms, in a footnote on pp. 158-167, where he discusses the various ways 'in which indirect taxation could be replaced by direct taxation and the effects of such a change' (Theocharis, p. 65). Stanley Jevons actually called this book one of the earliest books on "économie pure.". N° de ref. de la librería 16629
