Jean Dusaulx, un ancien joueur repenti, publie le dernier ouvrage de l'Ancien Régime hostile aux jeux de hasard. Secrétaire du duc d'Orléans, ami de Jean-Jacques Rousseau et futur conventionnel, Dusaulx dresse un réquisitoire implacable contre le joueur, jugé oisif, dépravé, brutal et égoïste, qui, dévoré par sa passion, retourne à l'état de nature et, superstitieux, se nourrit de blasphèmes et de préjugés trahissant une barbarie archaïque. Le joueur sans cesse tourmenté par des insomnies et des comportements hallucinatoires, est la victime d'une pathologie qui ruine son esprit et ses capacités corporelles. La critique de la fureur du jeu chez Dusaulx dénonce métaphoriquement la crise politique de l'Ancien Régime; les jeux de hasard favorisent la tyrannie dues parvenus; ils détruisent la société d'ordres et ses hiérarchies sociales. Non seulement ce livre eut un grand succès mais il attira l'attention du Parlement. On délibéra, les jeux furent abolis et les maisons fermées.

    Lieferung und Versand in Ordnung.
    Leider fehlen in dem Buch mehrere Kupfer, bzw. Wurden diese wohl herausgerissen; dies wurde nicht in der Beschreibung explizit erwähnt. Sehr schade
