Condition Report

Very rare first edition. Contains the extract of a letter written by da Cayes, the southern coast of Santo Domingo, April 12, 1765: speaks of the need to incentivize the Negro Trafficking in the Colonies and contains a prospect with the 'Prix des Négres' compared to the price 'de quelque s denrées', like sugar, cotton, coffee. On the last page an interesting 'Cours des changes' which also concerns the 'Actions des Indes', the Colonies and Canada. This is the n. 11 of the prestigious publication in which Quesnay, Mirabeau, Du Pont, Le Mercier De La Riviere collaborated.
