Author: [BAUDEAU (NICOLAS), ABBE] AND ABBE MORELLET, INTER ALIA:
Title: Encyclopedie Méthodique. Commerce.
Description: A Paris, Chez Pankoucke..., a Liège, Chez Plomteux..., 1783, 1784. FIRST EDITION. 3 volumes. 4to, pp. xxx [xxxi - xxxii Privilege General], 766; [iv], 798; [iv], 831 [832 blank], xvi, four folding tables in volume 2, contemporary mottled calf, spine ornately gilt in compartments, red and green morocco labels, marbled end-papers; corners worn, upper and lower front joint volume 3 slightly cracked, tops and bases of spines chipped; ex-library with library stamps in blind on initial leaves, and library pocket on rear paste-down end-paper of each volume. This is part of a much larger work issued over a number of years, with the general title Encyclopedié Méthodique. Other volumes were devoted to music, ancient and modern philosophy, mathematics, grammar and literature, jurisprudence, etc. The editors acknowledge their indebtedness to d'Alembert and Diderot, editors of the great Encyclopedié. Although the Encyclopedié Méthodique aimed at and copied the general comprehensiveness of the Encyclopedié, it was organized in self-contained units, so that purchasers who did not wish to have the complete work could acquire only those sections which were of use to them. Goldsmiths 12380, Kress B.574.
