Pensées de M. Pascal sur la Religion et sur quelques autres sujets. 1670. First impression of the second edition.
In-12. 40 ff - 358 pp (numbered to 334) - 10 ff. Fresh, no foxing, tight binding, original leather with gilt tooling. Includes 24 extra pages (anomalously numbered 307-330) inserted between pp 312 and 313.
The original proof edition dates from 1669 of which only 2 copies are known in the world, the BNF and Troyes. It is called the "pre-original". In January 1670 the first official edition came out with a large print run. Its pagination is perfectly regular. Soon sold out, it was followed by the 2nd edition with the 24 pages (one sheet) inserted at the last moment at the insistence of the Archbishop of Paris which explains the pagination errors of the first impression of the 2nd edition, which is the one offered here.
It was followed by the 2nd impression of the 2nd edition marked "Seconde édition" with corrected pagination, though this is now considered to be the third edition. All 3 constitute the 3 editions of 1670.

Excellent transaction, fast delivery, good communication. Many thanks
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Libro molto interessante, prezzo ragionevole, ma le condizioni del volume pessime.
Conservato all'umido e pieno di muffa.The photos show that the paper was swollen (from humidity). You must expect this from books kept in churches. I kept it dry but cannot answer for previous owners.
