Mémoire sur les colonies Américaines, sur leurs relations politques avec leurs métropoles, et sur la manière dont la France et L'Espagne ont dû envisager les suites de l'indépendance des Etats-Unis de l'Amérique.Paris, Pierre-Samuel Dupont, 1791. 8vo. 19th-century half calf, gold-tooled spine.
- Cat. Goldsmith I, 14728; Kress B2230; Sabin 97456. First separate edition of a revolutionary treatise on the relations between the American colonies and the colonising countries by the French economist Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781). He explains his theory that the colonising countries should withdraw from the colonies on a friendly basis allowing the colonies to have their own goverment and trade with other countries independently. When the colonising countries would grant the colonies independence, they could still have the benefit of trading and settling there. The treatise was already composed in 1776 at the request of King Louis XVI, who solicited his ministers' opinions regarding the proper French policy toward the American Revolution. It was first published as Reflexions rédigées. in Mazzei's Recherches historiques et politiques (1788).A very good copy, only a few small spots. [Attributes: First Edition]
