London: Printed for D. Wilson, and T. Durham, 1754 - Octavo (199 x 124 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, raised bands, edges sprinkled red. Small contemporary inscription to front pastedown. Extremities lightly rubbed and worn, minor striping and scuffing to boards, top compartment of spine repaired, endpapers browned, occasional foxing to text block, tear to p.391 affecting the first line of the page. A very good copy. First edition of this work, "the first notice in English of the Physiocratic doctrine" (Higgs), which collects more than 30 essays translated by Tobias Smollett from the Journal Œconomique. The Physiocratic doctrine proposes that the wealth of nations is derived solely from the value of agriculture or land-development; fittingly more than half of the essays selected by Smollett for his English translation deal with agriculture in various forms. Goldsmiths' 8885; Higgs 740; Kress 5401
