Some Considerations on Publick Credit. And The Nature of its Circulation in the Funds. Occasioned by A Bill now depending in Parliament, concerning Stock-jobbing.
London: printed for J. Brotherton and sold by A. Dodd, 1733 - Octavo (181 x 115 mm), pp. 21. Disbound pamphlet with remnants of original spine, red speckled edges. Exterior pages lightly soiled, lightly creased. A very good copy. First edition. "An exceedingly able defence of the stock exchange and speculative dealing in securities" (Foxwell, cited in Kress). This anonymous pamphlet was produced in response to John Barnard's attempted passage of an anti-stock jobbing Act in parliament. The treatise argued that a free market in the trade of government bonds was necessary to ensure that future bond sales at low interest rates would be successful, holding that an ability to rapidly acquire sources of credit is essential to a free government. The treatise was ultimately unsuccessful, as Barnard's Act, though heavily amended by the government, was passed in 1734 and made permanent in 1737. The pamphlet is scarce in commerce, last recorded at auction in 1962. ESTC T60416; Kress 4143; Goldsmiths 7095; Hanson 4615. [Attributes: First Edition]
