        ESSAI POLITIQUE SUR LA ROYAUME DE LA NOUVELLE-ESPAGNE. [with:] ATLAS GEOGRAPHIQUE ET PHYSIQUE DU ROYAUME DE LA NOUVELLE-ESPAGNE

      Paris: J.H. Stône for F. Schoell, 1811.. Five octavo text volumes plus large folio atlas. Text: Half titles. Folding engraved map, folding engraved geographical cross-section profile printed in brown. Atlas: Letterpress half title, titlepage, and 4pp. description of the "Cartes Géographiques et Physiques contenus dans l'Atlas Mexicain." Eighteen engraved maps, plates, and charts on 19 sheets (numbered 1-20), comprised of: engraved map on two double-page sheets; three maps on double-page sheet; eight maps on single page; one map and four graphs on single page; four single- page maps; two folding geographical cross-section profiles printed in brown and black; folding geographical cross-section profile printed in black; folding geographical cross-section profile printed in brown and black; two single-page views printed in brown; single- page plate of diagrams. Text: Contemporary blue paper boards, spines gilt, red morocco label. Atlas: Expertly bound to style in half dark blue morocco over contemporary marbled boards, spine uniform to the text volumes, contemporary marbled endpapers. Very good. Provenance: Earl Fitzwilliam (Milton Hall book label on the pastedown of the atlas). A fine set of Humboldt's work on New Spain: a foundation work in the fields of political economy and economic geography and "of superlative California importance." Humboldt's ESSAI is regarded as one of the seminal cartographic works of Western Americana. The most important map is Humboldt's great "Carte Generale du ROYAUME de la Nouvelle Espagne," originally executed by Humboldt during his stay in Mexico in 1803-4, and covering two large folio double sheets. Wheat calls it "a truly magnificent cartographic achievement" and concludes that before the explorations of Lewis and Clark, Humboldt's maps were in the first rank of western cartography. Schwartz and Ehrenberg state that it remained "the standard map of the Great Basin region until Fremont's explorations 35 years later." Thomas Streeter discusses the map at great length, concluding that "it is without question the best representation of Texas that had thus far appeared." It is certainly one of the seminal maps for Texas and the Southwest. Besides the large map, there is a double-sheet map of the whole North American continent south of 42° latitude which reiterates Humboldt's western cartography on a larger scale, and three important maps for the Santa Fe trade illustrating the route from Mexico to Durango, Durango to Chihuahua, and Chihuahua to Santa Fe. Other maps illustrate the Valley of Mexico, and ports and routes in Mexico and across the Isthmus. The ATLAS concludes with a series of fine geological/physical profiles (most printed in brown), and two excellent views of volcanoes, also in brown. Humboldt was described by Dibdin as the most illustrious traveler of his day. With the support of the Spanish Prime Minister, Humboldt managed to gain permission to enter the Spanish colonies of Central and South America, which were effectively closed at the time. He set off with the French botanist Bonpland from Marseilles in 1799, and spent five years travelling through Central and South America, during which time he covered some 6000 miles. He then returned to Europe and spent the next twenty-three years recording his experiences, observations and collections in a series of spectacular works. One of the first of these was the Essai Politique..., describing northern New Spain, particularly Mexico and the northern provinces, including California and the American Southwest. Becker calls the work "detailed and thorough, containing much data that had never before appeared in print." Dibdin adds: "Nothing seems too vast, too varied, too wonderful, or too minute, for the keen eye, penetrating intellect, and unwearied exertions of this extraordinary man. A botanist, zoologist, statistician and philosopher, the genius of this great writer seems to have been peculiarly fitted for surveying the varieties and immensity of the physical world; and he accordingly takes the foremost rank of all the travellers, dead or living."

Über ihn erhielt er gesellschaftliche und literarische Kontakte, u. a. zu dem arrivierten Autor Nicolas Boileau, der ihn ermutigte zu schreiben. 1710 begleitete er Puysieulx in die Schweiz, wo er sein erstes Stück zur Aufführung brachte, Le Curieux impertinent (der unverschämte Neugierige). Dieses wurde von der Pariser Comédie-Francaise übernommen, und auch die nachfolgenden Stücke, L'Ingrat (der Undankbare, 1712), L'Irrésolu (der Unentschlossene, 1713), Le Médisant (der Verleumder, 1715) oder Le Jaloux (der Eifersüchtige, 1716) kamen dort erfolgreich heraus. 1717 ging er mit Guillaume Dubois auf diplomatische Mission nach London, und blieb als Botschaftssekretär bis 1723 dort. Nach seiner Rückkehr erhielt er das adelnden Amt eines „königlichen Türwächters" (Garde de la porte du Roi) und wurde in die Academie Francaise aufgenommen. Nach seinen Abschied 1825 zog er sich auf ein Gut bei Melun zurück und wendete sich ganz der Literatur zu. (Zitat) Französisch

        Memorandum Relating to a View of the Islands in Controversy Between

      1811. Strong, George Washington [1783-1855]. [Huntington, Long Island, New York]. Memorandum Relating to a View of the Islands in Controversy Between Nicoll and the Town of Huntington [caption title]. [New York, 21 June 1811]. 12 leaves comprising 21 manuscript pages. Quarto (8" x 6"). Ribbon-stitched notebook in heavy glazed card stock covers, contemporary manuscript title to front cover. Some soiling, edgewear and minor stains to exterior, vertical fold line through center of item. Text in small neat hand, date and Strong's signature at end of text. Some toning, light foxing in places. * Prepared by George W. Strong, this memorandum documents an interesting phase of a New York Supreme Court case, issued out of the Court of Chancery of New York, in which a jury of six was impaneled to determine the facts pertaining to a land title dispute in an area of Huntington, Long Island (then part of Queens' County). This chancery case, Nicoll v. Trustees of Huntington, required the precise location of rivers, inlets, and islands cited in a 1688 patent for land on the south shore of Long Island. Strong's memorandum records the case in the Supreme Court, John Doe v. Richard Roe, a feigned issue or trial to determine the rights of the plaintiff to the disputed land. The plaintiff in the case was "William Nicoll, an Infant." In the present record of the first part of the Supreme Court trial, both the plaintiff and the Defendant, the Town of Huntington, were to appoint "shewers" [showers] who would go out and "view" the lands in dispute on June 17, 1811. It seems that over the decades since the original 1688 land patent and after some great storms, the terrain had changed and geographic references had to be "shewn" and "viewed" in order to determine Nicoll's standing to sue the Town of Huntington. The disputed lands were islands near the mouth of the "Connetquent" [Connetquot] river and near Fire Island, Captree Island, and Oak Island. The second part of the present record describes the actual viewing of the land that took place on June 17 and 19, 1811. In the present case, the judge ruled against Nicoll's claim. Despite this setback and after an appeal, the case continued in the Chancery Court who finally ruled, in 1814, that the plain

        Album

      [Marshfield Hills, MA]. 2010. Unique artist&#39;s book, altered book / autograph album assemblage with white kid gloves, embroidered handkerchief, and cross-stitched pink ribbon marker found in album housed in black cloth custom-made box with colophon printed in blue italic by the artist, Dorothy Krause and signed by her in gold ink. Page size: 6 x 8 inches, 118pp. Bound: original autograph album with the owner&#39;s name, "Alma Blydenburge" stamped in gold on the front within decorative gilt rule, album rebound using original covers with black cloth spine and new sewing. Housed in custom-made black cloth over boards box opening in front with recesses for cross-stitched ribbon fixed to box at bottom edge, gloves and linen handkerchief fixed to box at left edge on specially built-up tray, album in recess at right of gloves, laid in over the new printed colophon and artist&#39;s statement; front panels close with black ribbon tie secured with pewter rondel 1 x 1.5 inches on front right panel, box made by Mary McCarthy. The artist&#39;s statement reveals that the name, "Alma Blydenburge" appears on the front cover of the album and that she was born in 1811 in Smithtown, Suffolk, New York. She was 21 when she began keeping the album in 1832. At about the same time she married Richard Smith. She died in 1883 at age 52. Ms. Krause has added illustrations by Charles Dana Gibson with pigment printed images transferred with alcohol gel onto the original album pages, combining the elegant, feminine penmanship found in the album with Gibson&#39;s characterizations of the American feminine ideal. The titlepage of the original album shows a mourning group picture of that usually reserved for the death of a child (published by J.C. Riker New York) revealing this to be an album of mourning lovingly compiled by the owner and her friends. There are five pages with original watercolors of flowers or plants and one calligraphic page. A charming look at a past that seems light years away from today. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10395.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        The Right of a State to Grant Exclusive Privileges, In Roads, Bridges

      1811. [Fulton, Robert]. [Livingston, Robert L.]. The Right of a State to Grant Exclusive Privileges, In Roads, Bridges, Canals, Navigable Waters, &c. Vindicated; By a Candid Examination of the Grant from the State of New-York to, And Contract with Robert R. Livingston and Robert Fulton, For the Exclusive Navigation of Vessels, By Steam or Fire, For a Limited Time, On the Waters of Said State, And Within the Jurisdiction Thereof. New York: Printed by E. Conrad, 1811. 44, [9] pp. Octavo (7-3/4"x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in plain wrappers. Light rubbing to extremities, a few minor chips and creases, small stain to front board, wrapper worn away from foot of spine. Moderate toning to text, faint dampspotting and stains to first few leaves of text, internally clean. * First edition. This anonymously written pamphlet analyzes the case of Robert R. Livingston and Robert Fulton v. The Owners of the Albany Steam Boats," the first of a series of cases that culminated in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision Gibbons v. Ogden. The Livingston-Fulton monopoly was granted by the State of New York in 1798. The rival Albany Company challenged this monopoly unsuccessfully in 1810. Livingston and Fulton attempted to secure monopolies elsewhere in the United States and succeeded in obtaining one in Orleans Territory. More competitors challenged Livingston and Fulton, arguing that the commerce power of the federal government was exclusive and superseded state or territorial laws. The most important of these was Gibbons v. Ogden (22 U.S. 1), which was decided in 1824. The Court overturned the New York-granted monopoly, declaring that the Commerce Clause granted Congress the exclusive power to regulate interstate commerce. More important, this definition of commerce was broad enough to include inland navigation. The final nine pages of our pamphlet, "Supplemental Remarks," are not recorded in Sabin or American Imprints. OCLC locates 12 copies, none in law libraries.

        Observations Des Commissions Consultatives Sur Le Projet de Code Rural, recueillies, mises en ordre et analysées, avec un plan de révision du même projet : en vertu d'autorisation de S. Exc. Le Ministre de l'Intérieur Tomes I & II & III

      Paris, Imprimerie Impériale 1811 3 volumes reliés grands in-4° demi-toile de l'époque, pièce de titre de chagrin prune. Tome I : II-490 [1] pp. Tome II : 753-XXVIII pages. Tome III : XVI-683 pages. Magnifique exemplaire exempt de rousseurs. Le baron Jean Joseph de Verneilh-Puyraseau (1756-1839) était un homme politique français, député en 1791 et au Corps législatif en 1810, représentant aux Cent-Jours, député de 1817 à 1824 et de 1827 à 1830. Partisan des idées nouvelles, il devint maire de Pluviers (Dordogne) et membre du conseil général, et fut élu, le 9 septembre 1791, député du département de la Dordogne à l'Assemblée nationale législative, le 4e sur 10, par 457 voix (511 votants}. Il prit place parmi les modérés, prononça deux discours, l'un pour faire rejeter une demande de fonds pour les colonies, l'autre pour faire rendre un décret sur la purge des hypothèques, et fut membre adjoint du comité des finances. Il se retira à la campagne pendant la Terreur, fut nommé après la chute de Robespierre, président du tribunal civil de Nontron, puis juge de paix de Bussière-Badil, haut juré de la Dordogne à la cour de Vendôme (1797) où il participe au procès de Gracchus Babeuf, et président du tribunal criminel de la Dordogne (1799). Rallié au 18 brumaire, il fut successivement Préfet de la Corrèze le 11 ventôse an VIII, du nouveau département du Mont-Blanc (actuelle Savoie) le 8 floréal an X, et fut révoqué (février 1804) de ces dernières fonctions pour avoir refusé de faire condamner 322 familles de conscrits réfractaires. Sa disgrâce dura peu, car, en mai suivant, il fut nommé directeur des droits réunis dans la Mayenne, mais il refusa. Attaché alors, comme directeur du bureau des desséchements, au ministère de l'Intérieur, il publia eu 1802 une Statistique du département du Mont-Blanc. Il est chargé d'examiner le projet de code rural de 1807. Ce projet sur le modèle du code civil se caractérisait par sa modernité : la liberté des assolements était proclamée, les droits de parcours et de vaine pâture étaient supprimés. Le fermage devenait de fait le seul mode d'exploitation autorisé. Le décret impérial du 19 mai 1808 décide de l'examen du projet de Code rural par des experts nommés par les préfets. Ces observations furent rassemblées et publiée par Joseph Verneilh-Puyraseau : Observations des commissions consultatives sur le projet de Code rural, recueillies, mises en ordre et analysées, avec un plan de révision du même projet en vertu d'une autorisation de Son Excellence le Ministre de l'Intérieur. Mais les discussions sur le Code rural traînent en longueur et celui-ci ne verra jamais le jour. Seul un Code forestier fut publié en 1827, devant l'urgence causée par les dégradations des futaies. Président du collège électoral de Nontron en 1809, il fut élu, le 10 août 1810, par le Sénat conservateur, député de la Dordogne au Corps législatif, fit partie de la commission d'information créé par l'empereur, et, le 29 décembre 1813, appuya la demandé d'impression du rapport de Lainé

        ALS to Princess de Salm-Dyck regarding his work on a Malay dictionary

      Paris,: May, 1811.. 4 pp. autograph letter (the fourth page an address panel with postal stamp), signed Leschenault, 23 x 18.5 cm., neat and legible, small tear at original seal; very good. Fine letter by the botanist and Baudin veteran Leschenault de la Tour regarding his scientific work in the years after his eventual return to France in 1807. This letter, part of a small archive of three to the same correspondent, is a notable contribution to our understanding of the career of Leschenault, and shows him working on projects that he had begun during his sojourn in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.Jean-Baptiste Leschenault de la Tour was chief Botanist and ornithologist of the Baudin expedition to Australia (1800-1803). Although he remained on board the GÈographe during the entire Australian exploration, by the time the vessel reached Timor he was so ill that he had to be put ashore. Over the next three years he explored the botany of Java and also learned the Malay language. He returned to France in 1807, and spent the next decade working on his scientific papers, before voyaging to India in 1816.This letter and the two succeeding items were written to the femmes de lettres Princess Constance de Salm-Dyck (1767-1845). A friend of Dumas and Stendhal, she and her husband Joseph were also intimates ot Alexander von Humboldt. In 1809 the Salm-Dycks established a salon in Paris at the Hotel de Segur, and as the the present letters attest, Leschenault was a friend and frequent visitor.Leschenault writes that he has received the letter she did him the honour of writing, and discusses some work being published in the Magazin EncyclopÈdique and the Journal de l'Empire (the latter an anti-Napoleon newspaper that had earlier been titled the Journal des DÈbats); evidently the articles were quite controversial, as he refers to a "petit guerre" taking place. Leschenault goes on to complement Salm-Dyck on her book (given the date of the letter, probably her PoÈsies). Leschenault then continues with an account of finally seeing the first proofs of his dictionary of Malay, and noting that he hopes to improve it. He also wonders whether Salm-Dyck knows of the small 32 pp. attack on the geographical work of Malte-Brun that has recently been published, a work so polemical that it makes both parties look ridiculous, and which has not taken advantage of Salm-Dyck's own thoughts on the subject of arguments in the world of letters. There is also an engimatic comment that he no longer hears anything regarding the decree relating to the Merinos; it is not clear why Leschenault is interested in the sheep, but this must seemingly refer to the famous flock at the Royal Farm at Rambouillet. The letter finishes with his polite addresses to the Comte and their daughter ClÈmentine, as well as a few comment on the fish at Gregy (a property just outside Paris belonging to a friend he had recently visited).

        Essai Politique sur la Royaume de la Nouvelle-Espagne. [with:] Atlas Geographique et Physique du Royaume de la Nouvelle-Espagne

      Paris: J.H. Stône for F. Schoell, 1811. 6 volumes (text: 5 vols., octavo [8 3/8 x 5 1/4 inches]; atlas: large folio [22 x 16 3/4 inches]). Text: half-titles. 1 folding engraved map, 1 folding engraved geographical cross- section profile printed in brown. Atlas: letterpress half-title, title page and 4pp. description of the Cartes Géographiques et Physiques contenus dans l&#39;Atlas Mexicain. 18 engraved maps, plates and charts on 19 sheets (numbered 1-20), comprised of: 1 engraved map on two double-page sheets, 1 double-page sheet with three maps on it, 1 single-page with eight maps on it, 1 single page with 1 map and 4 graphs on it, 4 single- page maps, 2 folding geographical cross-section profiles printed in brown and black, 1 folding geographical cross-section profile printed in black, 1 folding geographical cross-section profile printed in brown and black, 2 single-page views printed in brown, 1 single-page plate of diagrams. Text: contemporary blue paper boards, flat spines divided into five compartments by gilt fillets, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartments. Atlas: expertly bound to style in half dark blue morocco over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, spine uniform to the text, contemporary marbled endpapers. A fine set of Humboldt&#39;s work on New Spain: a foundation work in the fields of political economy and economic geography and "of superlative California importance." Humboldt&#39;s Essai is regarded as one of the seminal cartographic works of Western Americana. The most important map is Humboldt&#39;s great "Carte Generale du Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne," originally executed by Humboldt during his stay in Mexico in 1803-4, and covering two large folio double sheets. Wheat calls it a truly magnificent cartographic achievement" and concludes that before the explorations of Lewis and Clark, Humboldt&#39;s maps were in the first rank of western cartography. Schwartz and Ehrenberg state that it remained "the standard map of the Great Basin region until Fremont&#39;s explorations 35 years later." Thomas Streeter discusses the map at great length, concluding that "it is without question the best representation of Texas that had thus far appeared." It is certainly one of the seminal maps for Texas and the Southwest. Besides the large map, there is a double- sheet map of the whole North American continent south of 42° latitude which reiterates Humboldt&#39;s western cartography on a larger scale, and three important maps for the Santa Fe trade illustrating the route from Mexico to Durango, Durango to Chihuahua, and Chihuahua to Santa Fe. Other maps illustrate the Valley of Mexico, and ports and routes in Mexico and across the Isthmus. The Atlas concludes with a series of fine geological/physical profiles (most printed in brown ), and two excellent views of volcanoes, also in brown. Humboldt was described by Dibdin as the most illustrious traveller of his day. With the support of the Spanish Prime Minister, Humboldt managed to gain permission to enter the Spanish colonies of Central and South America, which were effectively closed at the time. He set off with the French botanist Bonpland from Marseilles in 1799, and spent five years travelling through Central and South America, during which time he covered some 6000 miles.He then returned to Europe and spent the next twenty-three years recording his experiences, observations and collections in a series of spectacular works. One of the first of these was the Essai Politique..., describing northern New Spain, particularly Mexico and the northern provinces, including California and the American Southwest. Becker calls the work "detailed and thorough, containing much data that had never before appeared in print." Dibdin adds: "Nothing seems too vast, too varied, too wonderful, or too minute, for the keen eye, penetrating intellect, and unwearied exertions of this extraordinary man. A botanist, zoologist, statistician and philosopher, the genius of this great writer seems to have been peculiarly fitted for surveying the varieties and immensity of the physical world; and he accordingly takes the foremost rank of all the travellers, dead or living."

Announcing a series of celebrations of the baptism of Napoléon II (1811-1832), known from birth as the King of Rome, son of Napoleon and his second wife, Marie Louise of Austria. Issued in Imola, the original seat of the provisional government of the Cispandane Republic, later merged with the Transpadane Republic, forming the Cisalpine Republic, in turn merged into the new Italian Republic, and then 1805, following Bonaparte's assumption of the title of Emperor of the French, transformed into the Kingdom of Italy, Regno d'Italia, as it is here. After declaring that the people of Imola are second to none in their loyalty to Napoleon, the proclamation notes a series of activities: poems to be read, canon shots and the pealing of bells at dawn, cash prizes to those being married and those who gave birth on the King of Rome's birthday, food for the poor and for those imprisoned, and at night, the town is to be illuminated, and there will be presentations at the theater, a symphony concert, and a ball. One copy at Biblioteca comunale, Imola. No other copies shown at any North American or other European Libraries.

        KANGA SHINAN, NIHEN

      1811. Very Good. [EHON] KAWAMURA Bumpo. KANGA SHINAN NIHEN. Kyoto: Hishiya Magobei, et al., Bunka 8 [1811]. String-bound Japanese style in yellow covers with paper title labels. 26 x 17.5 cm. This "second series" of the KANGA SHINAN [Manual of Chinese-style Painting] was the only one illustrated by Bumpo and was published over thirty years after the first series; so it obviously stands on its own as an independent work. The simple designs are printed in sumi and light colors in very good impression. The condition of the three volumes is very good with only minor internal soiling and some exterior wear and soiling. A very nice example of an early printing. (Mitchell p. 335, Ryerson 385, Brown 104). Complete, as issued.

        INQUIRY INTO THE NATURE AND CAUSES OF THE WEALTH OF NATIONS

      London: J. Maynard...Haymarket; and F. Zinke...Strand, 1811. 3 volumes. Very early printing. This printing now with an Account of the Life of the Author which has been specially drawn up for the first time, as well as studies on the author and the French economists of the period, and a method of facilitating the study of the work 8vo, bound in very handsome and well preserved three-quarter contemporary polished calf over marbled boards, compartments of the spines decorated with gilt decorated raised bands, gilt lined bordering designs, two compartments lettered in gilt, one with morocco lettering labels, marbled end-leaves. lxxi, 360; vi, 512, 513-514 appendix; vi, 448, (50 pp.extensive index). An especially bright and fine set in very handsome and well preserved contemporary bindings. The text remains very clean, crisp and fresh. There has been no restoration work of any sort to bindings or text. Rare thus. AN UNUSUALLY WELL PRESERVED AND HANDSOME SET OF THIS EXTRAORDINARY WORK. &#145;The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory &#150; the physiocrats had already suggested it and Turgot in particular had constructed an organised study of social wealth &#150; his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange: "labour is the real measure of the exchangeable value of all commodities &#133; it is their real price; money is their nominal price only". Labour represents the three essential elements &#150; wages, profit, and rent &#150; and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter &#150; "stock" &#150; which compasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definite onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control. &#145;Where the political aspects of human rights had taken two centuries to explore, Smith&#146;s achievement was to bring the study of economic aspects to the same point in a single work &#133; The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought&#146; (PMM). Smith&#39;s classic work was begun at Toulouse in 1763-64 where he had travelled as guardian of Henry Scott, the young duke of Buccleuch, and in the company of David Hume, historian and fellow professor at Glasgow University. The work took shape over the next ten years and was finally published in 1776. At one point during its composition, Hume wrote that Smith was "cutting himself off entirely from human society." But his labors, however severe his methods, yielded the "first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (Printing and the Mind of Man). "[I]t may be said that the WEALTH OF NATIONS certainly operated powerfully through the harmony of its critical side with the tendencies of the half-century which followed its publication to the assertion of personal freedom and &#39;natural rights.&#39; It discredited the economic policy of the past, and promoted the overthrow of institutions which had come down from earlier times, but were unsuited to modern society. As a theoretic treatment of social economy, and therefore as a guide to social reconstruction and practice in the future, it is provisional, not definitive. But when the study of its subject comes to be systematized on the basis of a general social philosophy more complete and durable than Smith&#39;s, no contribution to that final construction will be found so valuable as his" (Britannica). Eighteenth century editions of Smith&#146;s magnum opus are becoming very scarce. This edition of 1811 is a very early English printing of the nineteenth century still in 18th century style. It retains Smith&#146;s introduction and also incorporates the author&#146;s advertisements to the third and fourth editions and a new advertisement to this edition setting out the additions made to the preliminary materials for this edition.
