Voltaire was a versatile and prolific writer, producing works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays, and historical and scientific works. One of Voltaire’s lesser-known works was his philosophical essay ‘L’Homme aux quatre écus’ or “The Man with the Forty Crowns”. This works discusses the parity in wealth in France offering his perspective on taxes, monetary circulation, governmental treasuries, and the manipulation of finances. Humorously, the satirical Voltaire suggests a tax on intelligence!

 

This tome also includes two other treatises – Jean Olivier’s edition of Pythagoras’s speech and study on metempsychosis and the reincarnation of the soul; as well as Louis Desbief’s discourse on musketeering.
