[South Carolina]:

REFLECTIONS ON THE STATE OF AFFAIRS IN THE SOUTH. FIRST PUBLISHED IN THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER.

[np: 1831 or 1832] 31, [1 blank] pp. Caption title [as issued], disbound, inconspicuous deaccession stamp at base of final blank. Very Good. This pamphlet analyzes South Carolina's economic dilemma: the tariff increases the price of goods it must import; and the new Southern States compete with it in the sale of cotton, its most crucial export. On the verge of Nullification, South Carolina blames the tariff for its difficulties. A separate title at pages [15]-31, 'Strictures on Mr. Lee's Exposition of Evidence on the Sugar Duty, in Behalf of the Committee Appointed by the Free-Trade Convention,' is unrecorded by American Imprints, which collates the piece at 14 pages. It includes several essays signed by 'Hambden,' refuting the pro-tariff position. FIRST EDITION. Howes R151. AI 3258 [2].
