Small 8vo. Very Good. Item #15428

This is a First Printing of a petition submitted by Paul Revere and his son, Joseph, representing
other copper smiths in Philadelphia and New York. They sought a 17 1/2 percent tarrif on imported copper sheets, while removing a current duty on old imported copper.

Revere, in addition to engraving, also operated a copper-rolling mill in Canton, MA, which had been in operation since the year 1800, and he and other copper smiths were seeking a price advantage over imported copper. While the committee did revoke the extant duty per the Reveres' request, they refused to install the tariff on new important sheet copper, realizing a competitive market would benefit all.

6pp. Mild edge wear. Sewn into later paper wraps with title pastedown on front, with title in manuscript. The paper wraps are housed in a stiff cardboard binding for protection, that also with a paper title pastedown on the front board.

A rare and unique Revere collectible and an interesting glimpse into his very successful career after the Revolutionary War.

Price: $75.00
