Jean-Jacques ROUSSEAU. Emile ou de l'éducation. Jean Néaulme [Duchesne], The Hague [Paris] 1762, 4 volumes.
First edition, very rare, with all the characteristics described by Mac Eachern (Bibliography of the Writings of Jean Jacques Rousseau to 1800, Émile, ou de l'éducation, Voltaire Foundation, 1989): printing errors of the paginations (vol. 1: S8 instead of 88, 433 instead of 443, 46 instead of 465; vol. 2: 256 instead of 356 and 257 instead of 357; vol. 3: 363 instead of 383; vol. 4: the tab on the first 3 of 336 is missing). The very last page ends with the word "end" and has no grapes. It is illustrated with five figures drawn by Charles Eisen, and engraved by Longueil (2), Louis le Grand (2) and Pasquier (1). Contemporary full calf binding (tears and wear).
Uncollated book sold as is.
