First edition.
Work in favor of the liberalization of the right to print money which was (and will remain) the privilege of the Banque de France. The author, "free-banker" as they were called, defends that "There is no reason of principle or case law to exempt fiduciary issuance from common law, to outlaw it from industrial freedom." His book comes in response to the crisis of the Banque de Savoie, during which the Savoyard bank was deprived of the right to coin money after the annexation of the Duchy of Savoy by France.
