Rapport sur le droit de marque des cuirs. Par un conseiller d'état.
Paris: Veuve Goujon fils,, 1804. Octavo (196 x 120 mm). Late 19th or early 20th century half calf and marbled boards by George J. Swayne of Brooklyn, spine decorated gilt in compartments, morocco labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Large folding table opposite page 28. Engraved armorial bookplate of Alexis and Elizabeth du Pont of Rencourt to front pastedown. Lightly toned throughout, one or two spots; an excellent copy. First and only edition. A very rare book, printed in only a few copies for private distribution, as stated in the preface. Written originally in 1788 in opposition to regressive internal tax policy, specifically the tax on hides and leathers, it remained unpublished until this moment when that and other reactionary fiscal measures were about to be revived. A virtual treatise on taxation, it is a good illustration of the immense practical and theoretical knowledge that Du Pont and his fellow Physiocrats were able to bring to the debate over public policy.
