    [DUPONT DE NEMOURS, Pierre Samuel.] Rapport sur le droit de marque des cuirs. Par un conseiller d'état.

    Paris : 1804

    First and only edition. A very rare book, printed in only a few copies for private distribution, as stated in the preface. Written originally in 1788 in opposition to regressive internal tax policy, specifically the tax on hides and leathers, it remained unpublished until this moment when that and other reactionary fiscal measures were about to be revived....

    DUPONT DE NEMOURS, Pierre Samuel. Sur l'éducation nationale dans les États-Unis d'Amérique. Seconde édition.

    Paris : 1812.

    Stated second edition but apparently the first printed. Schelle cites a "Philadelphia 1800" edition (no. 74) but we have been unable to locate a copy and it is apparently unrecorded. Dupont had published in 1793 a work of 47 pages entitled Vues sur l'éducation nationale par un cultivateur ou moyen de simplifier l'instruction, de la rendre à la fois... Learn More
