1817 On the Means of Arresting the Progress of National Calamity
What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce
A very scarce work by Sir John Sinclair, British politician, and author of finance and agricultural content.
Interestingly, he was the first person to use the word 'statistics' in the English language. He is mostly known for his twenty-one-volume work of Statistical Account of Scotland.
A fascinating 1817 pamphlet, being an extract from The Pamphleteer No. XX, volume X.
Twenty leaves discussing currency in Great Britain and how to avoid National Calamity. According to this pamphlet, 'either the means of Circulation must be increased, or the burden and payments to which it is liable, must be diminished. There is no alternative.'
Disbound. Externally smart with some shelf wear and a minor tide mark to the wraps, as well as a minor marking. Internally, firmly bound. With some minor scattered spotting throughout, as well as some offsetting to the leaves.
