Dew, Thomas R.:

LECTURES ON THE RESTRICTIVE SYSTEM, DELIVERED TO THE SENIOR POLITICAL CLASS OF WILLIAM AND MARY COLLEGE. BY... PROFESSOR OF HISTORY, METAPHYSICS AND POLITICAL LAW.

Samuel Shepherd & Co., Richmond: 1829 Contemporary paper-covered boards [spine shorn, hinges starting, moderately rubbed and worn]. viii, 195pp. Foxed, Good or so. A defender of the Virginia plantation system, with slavery, Dew here gave intellectual support for the South's profound opposition to tariffs. Here he "upheld the free-trade argument, relying upon the Physiocrats and Smith and Say. Though he declared his intention "' to avoid mingling in the politics of the day,' his lectures came squarely into collision with the heated assertions of the protectionist school...The Virginian, in an economic environment of a staple agriculture, foretold that disunion would follow if protection were pressed by the industrial North." DAB. FIRST EDITION. Haynes 4914. Swem 1450. V DAB 266. AI 38375 [11]. Not in Larned, Eberstadt, Decker, Rink, LCP.
