Description:

[MARTYN, Benjamin]. An Impartial Enquiry into the State and Utility of the Province of Georgia. London: Printed for W. Meadows, 1741. 1st ed. 104pp. Modern boards with morocco spine label. Lacks 1/2-title, light soiling to inner margin of title page, else fine. Very scarce. "Martyn was secretary to the Trustees of Georgia. This book has also been credited to John Percival, Earl of Egmont. It is an answer to reports which were being circulated `to the Disadvantage of the Colony of Georgia,' particularly to five objections: (1) that the climate was unhealthy; (2) that the soil was barren; (3) that there were no products for trade; (4) that lands were granted on improper terms; and (5) that the colony would not be of any value without Negro slavery. These objections were answered with material `chiefly collected from the Evidence of Persons who have been in the Province.' These letters, ten in number, are printed in the Appendix, and dated largely in 1739 and 1740." --Clark I, 122. HOWES M-354. Streeter II, 1146. De Renne I, 94. Bookseller Inventory #
