Daniel Defoe
REASONS AGAINST A WAR WITH FRANCE, OR AN ARGUMENT SHEWING THAT THE FRENCH KING'S OWNING THE PRINCE OF WALES AS KING OF ENGLAND, SCOTLAND AND IRELAND; IS NO SUFFICIENT GROUND OF A WAR
Printed in the Year, 1701. Three Quarters Leather. First Edition. First Edition of Daniel Defoe's anonymous political pamphlet, Reasons Against a War with France. "Though ostensibly arguing that the French sanction of an empty title was no sufficient ground for a war, his real purpose was to urge that the solid interests of England lay in securing for itself the colonial empire of Spain" (DNB). Some trimming to the top and fore edges; minor paper repair to the bottom of the final leaf, affecting a catchword. Armorial bookplate of Michael Tomkinson (1841-1921) on the modern front pastedown. Signed binding by Ramage. Fully rebacked by a conservator using Japanese tissue. Three quarters mottled calf over marbled paper. Very Good. (Moore 39. ESTC T56951. DNB V, 732.). Very Good binding. [Attributes: First Edition]
