N.E. RETIF DE LA BRETONE. L'Ecole des Pères. En France, & à Paris, chés la Veuve Duchêne, Humblot, Le-Jai & Dorez, Delalain, Esprit, Mérigot, 1776. 3 volumes in 8°, paperback, marbled paper covers, handwritten labels on spine, untrimmed, as issued. [1 f.] title, 480 pp. (2 quires inverted, last quire unstuck, marginal tear to 2 ff. not missing); [1 f.], 192 pp.; [1 f.], 370 pp., [1 f.] (2 ff. unstuck). Second edition with the same date as the original, but published between 1776 and 1780, although it cannot be established with certainty. It gives the definitive form of the work after the numerous deletions imposed by a ruthless censor, which obliged Restif to make cartons. Our copy, which is complete, is cardboard-bound like most of those usually found. This book belongs to the Idées singulières and could have been entitled l'Educographe. Inspired by the theories developed by Rousseau in the Emile, Restif shares his pedagogical ideas... Minor foxing. Rives Childs, p. 242. A very fine copy in its original state, with wide margins and virtually no foxing.
