Philadelphia, [PA]: John Conrad, & Co. No. 30, Chestnut Street.... H. Maxwell Printer, 1802. First edition. 8vo. 340, 45, [3] pp. Frontis. portrait of the author, done by St. Memin, tipped in. Period calf with gilt stamping on spine. Hinges and joints cracked, head of spine worn down to page edges, overall toning to text. Library labels on inside front cover and embossed stamp on title page of the Department of Commerce. Inscribed on front flyleaf: "To John Sergeant, Esq. from...the Author." Sergeant was a prominent lawyer and politician. Barton, a Philadelphia lawyer, dedicated the book to Jefferson, supporting the dictum that "free ships make free goods." An important work. It is hard to say whether this or Noah Webster's book on Neutral Rights might be the first American authored book published in America on international law, both done the same year.

SOWERBY 2134 - In the description is quoted a letter to Jefferson from Barton talking about the inserted portrait by St. Memin, which did not accompany all copies. Item #64718
