[Philadelphia: np, 1824]. 4pp. 9 x 51 2 inches. Three small losses along spine; good. One of a series of tracts written in 1824 by Mathew Carey using the pseudonym “Hamilton,” likely in honor of the late Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton. Here, Hamilton’s economic views are here favorably contrasted with those of political economists Adam Smith and J. Baptiste Say. Carey’s tract proposes a more protective tariff or increase of duties on imported cotton, wool, and iron. Carey argues that the lack of adequate protections for American manufacturers of these goods leads to a further depression in other branches of industry as well. American Imprints 15676.
