Tibbits, George:

BEING AN APPENDIX AND ILLUSTRATION OF A MEMOIR ON THE SAME SUBJECT, READ BEFORE THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, MARCH 8, 1825. BY...OF RENSSELAER COUNTY, STATE OF NEW YORK.

Clark & Raser, Philadelphia: 1829 55pp, disbound, moderately foxed, Good+. This item was first published in Albany in 1825 under a slightly different title, followed by two 1827 Philadelphia printings. Tibbits's Preface to this edition, dated December 1829, explains its re-issuance, now that South Carolina is threatening secession over the tariff issue: "We are threatened with resistance to the government, and consequently with civil war, if we do not adopt a policy" favoring free trade. But such a policy, he argues, has "enfeebled and impoverished those countries" that have tried it. The detailed argument discusses the theories of Adam Smith, Ricardo, and Say; and prints, as an Appendix, an essay by Thomas Cooper, President of Columbia College in Charleston, when Cooper-- now a passionate free trader-- was a Protectionist. AI 40650 [11]. Rink 3124.
