Revolution de l’Amerique. Par M. l’Abbé Raynal, auteur de l’Histoire Philosophique et Politique des Etablissemens, et du Commerce des Européans dans les deux Indes. Londres, 1781.
Same year as the first edition. 8vo, pp. viii, 173, , D2 cut along the margin with loss, but nowhere near text, contemporary ownership inscription of ‘B.Imbert fils’ on the title page, in contemporary mottled calf, flat spine gilt in compartments with green morocco label lettered in gilt, some slight erosion to boards but generally an attractive copy.
A scarce pirated edition of the Abbé Raynal’s popular work which ran to several editions in 1781, many of which bear the ‘Londres’ imprint. In the present case, the Londres imprint is probably false; ESTC suggests a French or Dutch printing.
