About this Item

[2],31pp. Small quarto. Stitched as issued. Vertical crease down the center. Some minor soiling, primarily confined to exterior leaves. Very good. In a brown half morocco clamshell box, spine gilt. Second edition, after the first of 1689. One of the earliest objections to taxation without representation to arise from the British colonies. Littleton was a Barbados planter who sought lower tariffs. In this tract, he charges that his fellow sugar planters had been brought to the brink of ruin by heavy customs duties, and by the requirement that they purchase all imports from within the empire. Largely due to his efforts, the taxes were reduced and monopolies eliminated. SABIN 3271. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 698/134. KRESS 1700. GOLDSMITH 2743. BEINECKE LESSER ANTILLES COLLECTION 88.
