        Thoughts on the Study of Political Economy,

      Cambridge, MA: printed by Hilliard and Metcalf,, 1809. As connected with the population, industry and paper currency of the United States. Octavo (214 x 133 mm). Recent buff paper-backed blue boards, paper label to front board printed in black, sprinkled blue edges. Contents browned and foxed with a little offsetting, overall a very good copy. First edition of the eminent civil engineer's treatise promoting the study of political economy, "a science so eminently conducive to the improvement of all our social and political relations" (p. 71). "Baldwin advocated, as a remedy for the evils of the irregular currency of the time, that the state banks be consolidated, and that the capital of the United States Bank be extended. He favoured internal improvements in his country, and displayed more than ordinary appreciation of the use of statistics; he also advised that the United States census of 1810 should include a record of births, deaths, and marriages" (Palgrave I). Loammi Baldwin, Jr. (1780–1838) was a Harvard graduate who, from his engineering practice in Charleston, Massachusetts, worked on several large-scale public projects, such as the construction of Pennsylvania's Union and Harrisburg canals, and the first two naval dry docks built in America. Each presented, in some way, a milestone in American engineering, and many were some of the era's largest civic works projects.

Plate mark to first act "566" with "1" below; to second act "A.2.566," to third act "566.3," and to fourth act "566.4." With somewhat curious early manuscript note laid in relative to the text of Aria no. 10, Non piu andrai farfallone amoroso, stating "Si pongano le sole parole Italiane," but printed text is in both Italian and French to this particular aria, as it is throughout. Binding somewhat worn and scuffed; head and tail of spine frayed and partially lacking.

While Köchel (8) p. 545 cites the first edition as having been published in 1795 by Imbault, there are no known copies of this; it would thus appear to be a "ghost" (a citation for which there is no recorded copy). First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on May 1, 1786, with libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte after Beaumarchais. "Figaro is generally agreed to be the most perfect and least problematic of Mozart's great operas... In the great finales of Acts 2 and 4, Mozart reached a level which he could never surpass; indeed, he was hardly to equal the Bb Allegro of the second act finale for its mercurial motivic play and the subsequent Andante in 6/8 for the synchronization of dramatic revelation with the demands of musical form."

Very good overall, restored to an attractive usable condition. Following the Duke of Wellington's strategic defeat of French forces in Portugal in 1808, his plans for total victory in the Iberian peninsular were cut short by the untimely arrival of senior British Generals, Harry Burrard and Hew Dalrymple, who concluded a swift peace agreement with the French General Junot, allowing his army to retreat back to France with all the valuables they had looted during their occupation of the country in 1807. When the details of this circumstance became known in London it was considered a National disgrace, and all three senior Generals were ordered back to the Capital to face an Inquiry, published here in full the following year.

Near fine condition.Early American printer, publisher and bookbinder who, at the age of 18, assisted her father, Robert Aitkin, in publishing the first complete English Bible in America. She inherited her father's business upon his dearth in 1802 but also incurred thousands of dollars of his debt. On at least two occasions she lost her printing presses to a sheriff's sale and once ended up in debtor's prison. Shockingly, despite being a pioneering woman in early American printing, she is largely unheard of in historical records other than her obituary, and to make matters worse, her burial place is assumed to be in the destroyed cemetery of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.
