Voltaire - Candide Limited Edition (Published in by The Folio Society in 2011. Illustrated and signed by Quentin Blake. Number xxx of a limited edition of 1000 copies. Philosopher, playwright and historian, Voltaire, during his eighty-four years of life, wrote an enormous number of books. Yet it is CANDIDE above all his works, which has kept his memory alive in the hearts of posterity. This biting satire, which was written largely as an attack on the fanatical intolerance of eighteenth century France, remains both timeless and timely in its living thought. Each page sparkles with wit, each chapter overflows with incident. )
