About this Item

GEE, Joshua. The Trade and Navigation of Great-Britain Considered: Shewing, That the Surest Way for a Nation to Increase in Riches, Is To Prevent the Importation of Such Foreign Commodities as May Be Raised at Home. London: Printed for A. Bettesworth and C. Hitch; and S. Birt, 1738. 4th ed. xxix,(8),239 pp. 19th-century polished gilt-decorated polished calf with gilt-lettered panelled spine, A.e.g. A near fine copy. HOWES G-92. Expanded with a supplement and a table of contents. Joshua Gee (1667-1730) was a Quaker and friend of William Penn. Gee, a wealthy merchant, was among the original mortagees of Pennsylvania and a member of the Board of Trade. This work is a strong argument for the protection of British trade by dealing with the North American colonies and there are chapters dealing with trade with the tobacco plantations, Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and New England, as well as with European nations, Africa, and India. He argues that Britain's strength depends on not relying on trade with other nations, and it should instead trade within its colonial sphere. Bookseller Inventory # 54097
