Very minor foxing on pages near endpapers, interior pages clean. An attack on Voltaire's Dictionnaire philosophique. Nonnotte (1711-1793) entered the Society of Jesus and preached at Amiens, Versailles, and Turin. Nonnotte was a controversialist, chiefly known for his writings against Voltaire. When Voltaire issued his 'Essai sur les moeurs' (1754), an attack on Christianity, Nonnotte published, anonymously, the 'Examen critique ou Réfutation du livre des moeurs'; and when Voltaire finished his publication (1758), Nonnotte revised his book, which he published at Avignon (2 vols., 1762). Against the 'Dictionnaire philosophique', in which Voltaire had recapitulated, under a popular form, all his attacks on Christianity, Nonnotte published the 'Dictionnaire philosophique de la religion' (Avignon, 1772), in which he replied to all the objections then brought against religion.
