The first three parts, constituting L'Ami des Hommes, were first published by Mirabeau in 1756, before his meeting with Quesnay and his conversion to the physiocratic theses. In 1758 the work was reissued as a new edition with a fourth part added, and in 1760 the fifth and sixth parts. Thus the present edition is the first complete one.

Notably the final volume of the work includes Quesnay's Tableau Economique, the first work attempting to describe the workings of the economy in an analytical way. Portions of Quesnay's work had been privately printed in a few copies only at the palace at Versailles in 1758 and 1759, but is here more widely and fully published.

An important work on economic thought and political theory.
