Voltaire - Candide Limited Edition - ( Item 115732 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2011. First Thus. Near Fine Leather Hardback. The previous owner has written neatly in Biro on the top of page 9 ( the first page of the introduction) "Discussed in detail : Radio 4 3rd May 2012." Near Fine slipcase. Slight bump to top corner of slipcase. Illustrated and signed by Quentin Blake. Number 908 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.
