CONSIDERATIONS ON THE PROPRIETY OF IMPOSING - [Dulaney, Daniel] - 1766. 
North America [i.e. Boston, 1766. ,ii,-47pp. with pasted down encomium. Antique style three quarter calf and marbled boards. Titlepage trimmed and mounted on stub; contemporary inscription. Very good. The Boston edition of this pamphlet, published the year after the very rare first edition. Dulaney, a Maryland lawyer, opposed the Stamp Act on the grounds that the theory of virtual representation did not apply to the colonies. His work was of importance in raising further opposition to the internal taxation of the British North American colonies, and with Otis was considered the most forceful argument of colonial rights at the time. William Pitt is said to have been strongly influenced by Dulaney's opinions and their author was publicly acknowledged by him. EVANS 9959 (dated 1765). SABIN 21170. WROTH 257.
