$45.00

Candide is Voltaire’s magnum opus, a slim work with enormous consequence on literary culture, both in France and the rest of Europe and America. Through satire and simple storytelling, Voltaire criticizes many prevailing philosophical theories of the Enlightenment and ends his work with no obvious philosophic formation in the minds of his characters–a brilliant denouement, one continually contemplated ever since it was published.

This 1979 Franklin Library edition of Voltaire’s classic is in fine condition. Illustrated throughout by Antoni Clavé. Bound in half green leather, 22k gilt stamped boards and spine. All edges gilt. Stunning marbled endpapers and green silk ribbon sewn in.

An elegant collector’s copy of Voltaire’s classic.
