Washington, D.C.: R.C. Weightman, 1808. Hardcover. Near Fine. 123, [1] p.; 21 cm. Modern binding: black cloth spine with gilt-tooled spine title; flax paper dyed brown with aniline dye over acid-free boards. "April 12, 1808. Printed by order of the Senate." Includes communications by B.H. Latrobe and Robert Fulton on the subject of canals. Howes, G27. Albert Gallatin was Secretary of the Treasury from 1801 to 1813. Gallatin advocated an ambitious program to improve the nation's transportation infrastructure for which he was unable to muster enough support at the federal level. As had been traditionally done, such improvements were instead accomplished piecemeal during the 19th century by local governments, and private road and canal companies. In Near Fine Condition: pages are browning but clean and tight.
