He was an outspoken advocate, despite the risk this placed him in under the strict censorship laws of the time. As a satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticise intolerance, religious dogma, and the French institutions of his day. The name also echoes in reverse order the syllables of the name of a family chateau in the Poitou region: Airvault.
He is remembered and honoured in France as a courageous polemicist who indefatigably fought for civil rights as the right to a fair trial and freedom of religion and who denounced the hypocrisies and injustices of the Ancien Regime. The Ancien Regime according to common opinion involved an unfair balance of power and taxes between the three Estates: clergy and nobles on one side, the commoners and middle class, who were burdened with most of the taxes, on the other.
He particularly had admiration for the ethics and government as exemplified by Confucius. Voltaire is also known for many memorable aphorisms, such as Si Dieu n'existait pas, il faudrait l'inventer If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him , contained in a verse epistle from , addressed to the anonymous author of a controversial work on The Three Impostors. But far from being the cynical remark it is often taken for, it was meant as a retort to the atheistic clique of d'Holbach, Grimm, and others.
Condition: In full diced calf leather bindings with gilt borders to the boards. He reproduced it many times, but Voltaire never lost his sardonic smile or the twinkle in his eye.
