About this Item

Founded to "promote the manufacturing interest of our country" in 1787, the Society sent out this communication giving its constitution and list of officers with a report on the present state of manufacturing in the United States. This includes a discussion of growth in domestic raw materials and manufactures ? with some detail as to items whose production has increased ? and reports decline in the need for imported materials and manufactured goods. The whole ends on a note at once self-congratulatory and restrained: Things are, happily, "in most respects very considerably better than . . . at the first establishment of the Society." Tench Coxe was the publishing President, Peter A. Browne, the Secretary. 8vo (20.5 cm, 8.07"). [2], 28 pp. Shaw & Shoemaker 7024; Sabin 60367; Rink, Technical Americana, 2967. Removed from a nonce volume. Dust-soiled. First few leaves detached. Ex-library: old pencil markings and yellow label with lending rules of the Mercantile Library Company of Philadelphia on front fly-leaf, with offsetting from glue on title-page. Mild foxing.
