Goldsmith 3486; Kress 2070; Wing C3862. A classic work first appearing in 1668 under a different title and as a thin pamphlet (reprinted in 1689); this was enormously expanded for the 1690 edition which was reprinted in 1693 (and at that time retitled for the first time as here) and 1694. Child was one of the most influential English mercantilist authors of the seventeenth century. His preoccupation with Dutch expansionism naturally leads him into a detailed examination of the commercial battles between Britain and Holland and America and the East Indies. Here he argues that a high rate of interest hinders the growth of trade and discourages navigation, industry, arts, and invention. He urges the abolition of technical regulation of the cloth industry, and is concerned with strengthening the competitive power of English merchants. 'The argument in the New Discourse to show that colonies do not depopulate the mother country, is as conclusive as if it had proceeded from the pen of Mr Malthus; and the reasoning in defence of the naturalization of the Jews discovers a mind greatly superior to existing prejudices..' McCulloch, p.42. Photograph available on request.
