LE TROSNE (Guillaume-François)]. Letters to a friend, on the advantages of the free grain trade and the danger of prohibitions. Amsterdam, & is in Paris, Desaint, 1768. In-12, paperback, untrimmed, marbled paper cover and spine paper reinforcement (Binding of the period). Goldsmiths, #10432.4. - INED, n°2874. Original edition, rare. The question of the grain trade focused the attention of several economists in the 18th century, so Le Trosne (1728-1780) addressed the subject as early as 1765 with a brochure entitled La liberté du commerce des grains, always useful and never harmful. Through his six letters, he reaffirmed his position as a proponent of liberalization, so that trade in the first commodity would henceforth be governed only by these two maxims..., Laissez faire et laissez passer (p. 168). Copy as published, stapled under its marbled paper cover.
