Thoughts on Instinctive Impulses . . . [Bound with:] Second Thoughts on Instinctive Impulses.
Philadelphia: Printed by Jane Aitken, 1810. [And:] Philadelphia: Printed for the Author, 1813. First edition of each title.. Some evidence of toning and a large tide mark throughout; somewhat worn; free endpapers excised; a good, sound copy.. 2 vols bound in 1, contemporary leather over which has been glued completely (at likely an early date) rough paper as a sort of crude repair or protective jacket, 90, [2], 143 pages. The first title is an uncommon Jane Aitken imprint, and the two titles together mark an interesting early work of American psychology from the English-born American eccentric and financial reformer Thomas Law (1756-1834). Law implemented important reforms in India during his service with the East India Company, then came to the United States in 1793. He was an early and enthusiastic promoter of Washington, D. C. and brief married into the Custis family in 1796. (See the DNB.)
