About this Item

Uncut copy of the first (or possibly second) edition of what the Henry Stevens Company described in its 1927 Catalogue of Rare Americana (#671) as a "secretly printed" pamphlet in which the anonymous writer (Arthur Manwaring) studies what he sees as the problem of the growing power and influence of France in Europe and the New World (Canada, the West Indies, and potentially much of the Spanish empire). Such concern sprang from the Peace of Utrecht ending the War of the Spanish Succession, by which the French House of Bourbon assumed the Spanish throne following the death of the last of the Hapsburgs and a decade-long war. There were two editions printed: This, with the pagination as above and with the title-page sporting a double-rule around the text area, and another with only 32 pp. and no border on the title-page. Precedence apparently not established. 8vo (20.5 cm; 8"). [2] ff., 35, [1] pp. Alden & Landis, European Americana, 711/177; Goldsmiths' 4837; Kress 2743; ESTC T46891. Not in Sabin. Uncut, some chipping of edges. Recent boards covered with charcoal-colored paper. Some cockling and staining. Six-digit number stamped on half-title. A good+ copy. Bookseller Inventory # 6289
