MIRABAUD [i. e. D'HOLBACH (Paul Thiry)]: Système de la Nature ou Des Loix du Monde Physique & du Monde Moral. London (Paris), 1770; two volumes in 8°, blond shagreened calf, very ornate spines, fine lace on the boards, gilt fillet on the edges, gilt edges. Binding of the period. A very fine copy of the extremely rare ORIGINAL EDITION of this work which made the fame of its author. Although daring in his ideas, D'Holbach was much less so in everyday life; it is very often under assumed names, as is the case for this major text, that he published his writings. A very nice copy.
