Description: CANDIDE ou l'Optimisme, traduit de l'allemand, de M. le Docteur Ralph. Nouvelle édition augmentée du Remerciement de Candide et de la confession de M. de V***. S. l., 1760 ; in-8, basane brune, dos orné. (Reliure de l'époque).
166 pp., 2 ff., 20 pp., 14 pp. Première édition des Remerciements... et de la Confession... Le second titre Remerciements de Candide à M. de Voltaire comporte l'adresse de Halle et Amsterdam, Schneider, 1760 et Ma confession par M. de V*** porte l'adresse de Genève, 1760. Bien que la pagination soit séparée, ces trois titres appartiennent bien au même ouvrage. Bengesco 1442 - V. à la BN 2637. Relié à la suite : [Apocryphe]. Candide ou l'Optimisme, traduit de l'allemand, de M. le Docteur Ralph. Seconde partie. S. l. 1761 ; 96 pp. Cette édition ne semble conforme à aucune de celles décrites dans V. à la BN ou Bengesco. L'exemplaire Morize de cette édition de Candide comportait bien cette Seconde partie à la suite, mais sans date et avec une collation différente. La seconde partie de Candide fut attribuée un temps à Campigneulles qui la désavoua. Cette suite fut, dans les éditions ultérieures, souvent imprimée à la suite de Candide. Quelques feuillets tachés, reliure usagée.
