COMPILED IN OBEDIENCE TO INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE, APPOINTED BY THE FREE TRADE CONVENTION, TO PREPARE A MEMORIAL TO CONGRESS, FROM DOCUMENTARY AND OTHER EVIDENCE FURNISHED FOR THE USE OF THE COMMITTEE, BY INTELLIGENT PRACTICAL MEN ENGAGED IN THESE VARIOUS BRANCHES OF BUSINESS.

Mifflin & Parry, Printers, Philadelphia: 1832 68pp, lightly worn. Original printed wrappers [lightly worn]. Stitched. Good+ or Very Good. OCLC attributes authorship to Clement C. Biddle. The pamphlet, bristling with data, is a detailed, careful analysis of existing tariffs and their harmful effects on American manufactures. They have "retarded the fair and natural growth of every branch" of American manufacturing, "diminished the employment, and reduced the wages and profits of the valuable class of American artisans." The dispute between South Carolina and Andrew Jackson over the tariffs of 1828 and 1832 brought on the Nullification Crisis. OCLC 2161945 [16]. AI 12349 [6]. Not in Sabin, Eberstadt, Decker.
