Description

First Edition

The first edition of this discussion of manufacturing and trade in England.

A rebuttal to essays by 'A London Merchant' which appeared in April and May 1848 in the Manchester Courier. These essays were written in support of free trade policies.

This work politely presents an opposing view, concluding with the opinion that the result of free trade 'could only be to limit the employment of British labour, and to deny the means of living to the most necessitous among our population'.
