[Carey, Mathew]:

ESSAYS ON THE PROTECTING SYSTEM.

Philadelphia: 1830 Modern plain wrappers, 72pp. Scattered light foxing. Good+. Presentation with 'M. Carey's respects.' Carey was the leading protectionist of the 19th century. He believed in trade barriers, especially "where a nation imposes high duties on our productions;" and argued that domestic production "creates a demand for such [articles] as were either unknown or produced in inconsiderable quantities." He prints four items, accompanied by his preface 'To The Reader.' They include, among others, a refutation of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations; and Addresses of Carey's Philadelphia Society for the promotion of National Industry. Carey calls the latter's publications "the first regular, systematic attempt to explain and defend the protecting system." American Imprints locates only the copy at the American Antiquarian Society; NUC adds 8 more sites. FIRST EDITION. AI 770 [1]. 95 NUC 0133230 [9]. Rink 3125.
