Book Description London: J. Almon, 1767., 1767. 22,[1]pp. Modern three-quarter brown calf and marbled boards, gilt- stamped spine. Internally bright and near fine. An intriguing reprint of two papers drawn up and published by a 1739 association of colonial merchants headed by Sir William Keith, colonial governor of Pennsylvania. Almon's purpose in reprinting the papers seems to have been to demonstrate that respected colonial authorities in the past advocated such tariffs as were creating difficulties. He implores the reader to consider the merits of the colonial position in light of Keith's argument and the recent repeal of the Stamp Act. Though Almon was a close friend of Edmund Burke and the opposition, his approach here is more measured. The last leaf of text advertises additional pamphlets printed by Almon on the subject of American taxation. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 67-15. KRESS 6501. SABIN 97575. DNB (online).
