About This Item

1823. Nineteenth-Century Archive Concerning American Tariffs [Archive]. [Tariff Laws]. [Pamphlets, Circulars, Offprints and Letters Concerning Tariffs]. Massachusetts, New York and Washington, DC, 1823-1902. 72 items, comprising 42 pamphlets, 12 offprints, 10 circulars and 8 letters, sizes range from 5-1/4" x 3-1/4" to 12-1/2" x 9-1/2." Light to moderate toning, browning to a few pieces, fold lines, minor wear and soiling, a few items neatly split along fold lines. $1,800. * A representative sampling of issues concerning tariffs during the nineteenth century, this archive includes analytical and polemical pieces, speeches, printings of U.S. Congressional bills and letters. Most of the items date from the 1870s, 1880s and 1890s, the decades of the "Gilded Age," a period of rapid economic growth, considerable income inequality, labor unrest and the beginnings of the modern global economy. Two of the letters are addressed to members of the U.S. Congress, two are (unrelated) replies from U.S. congressmen. One is a mimeograph from October 18, 1890 by Samuel W. Mendum, secretary of the United Questions Club of Massachusetts, containing eight questions, that was sent to each congressional candidate in Massachusetts. It is accompanied by a letter with answers from Jonas H. French, a candidate from the Seventh District. Taken together, this archive is an excellent resource of primary materials for students of a perennial issue in American politics. A complete list of items is available on request.
