Cont. mottled cf. w. dec. gilt spine w. in each compartment monogram ("BB") of the Bibliotheque Bignon.

First edition of a study on the profits of maritime trade and commerce by Pierre André O'Heguerty (1700-1763), a Breton economist and maritime expert. The work is largely based on his own experiences, as he, since his marriage, owned a large coffee plantation on the island of Bourbon. The essay can be seen as a plea to the French Government, to promote maritime trade and commerce with the French colonies, instead of allowing foreigners to take away the profits. - Barbier II, 259; Einaudi 4196; Kress 5376; Sabin 31236; Quérard VI, p. 477.
