AN ENQUIRY Into The Causes of the Miscarriage Of The Scots Colony at Darien. Or An Answer To A Libel Entituled A Defence of the Scots Abdicating Darien. Submitted to the Consideration of the Good People of England.
8vo. pp. 4 p.l., 112. stitched, as issued. in folding cloth box. First Edition. A reply to a pamphlet attacking the ill-fated Darien colony in America, written by James Hodges (Defence of the Scots Abdicating Darien, Including an Answer to the Defence of the Scots Settlement There, 1700). George Ridpath is suggested as the probable author in the Kress Library Catalogue. The writer attempts to discredit Hodges as a 'monster, renegade and traitor' and dismisses his charges against the 'Company of Scotland trading to Africa and the Indies' ('Darien Company') as malicious calumnies. In turn, he attributes the failure of the colony to the commercial jealousy and opposition of the English Crown, which from the outset sought to ruin the venture, threatening legal action against the directors of the company, prohibiting the subscription of English capital, actively hindering German and Dutch subscriptions, and forbidding the English colonies in America to afford any manner of assistance to the Scots at Darien.Wing I213.

AMERICAN BOND AND CURRENCY DETECTOR COMPANY.
The American Bond Detector; And Complete History of the United States Government Securities; Issued Under The Sanction Of The United States Treasury Department.
Washington, D.C.: 1869..
oblong folio. pp. 2 p.l., 100. 22 engraved plates of American bank notes (some colour) & 9 chromolithographed & embossed plates of coins in gold, silver & copper metallic tones. new half calf, original cloth from front cover bound in (paper lightly embrowned, light soiling or foxing to some plates). First Edition. The plates of the bonds were printed at the Treasury Department from the original dies in the possession of the government and show all of the bonds issued under the Acts of Congress from July 17, 1861, to March 3, 1868. The descriptive text includes important details to aid in the detection of counterfeits. Also included are nine chromolithographed and embossed plates in metallic tones showing the obverse and reverse of different denominations of gold, silver, and copper American and international coins. This is the only work of its type ever produced due to the fact that the Treasury Department refused to authorize any further use of its security dies. The intent was to furnish "bankers and the public with a positive and permanent basis for testing the genuineness of their bonds, and for the dissemination of information believed to be of the first importance for the protection alike of individuals and the government". The publishers have carefully guarded their plates from the liability of any possible transfer or misuse by the adoption of a small segmented mutilation in the form of the letter V. Authorship has been attributed to both Nehemiah George Ordway, who is listed on the verso of the title as having filed for copyright, and to Laban Heath, who wrote Heath's Infallible Counterfeit Detector (1864).

Second Edition, revised and greatly enlarged, of this important work, which is regarded as the principal authority on the state of French finances for the period. It was originally published in 1840 in two volumes, and is here enlarged to contain all of the author's writings on financial and administrative questions. Audiffret was a French financier and senator (1852) who served for many years as chief clerk in the administration of finances, and became president of the court of accounts (cour des comptes) in 1829. He was responsible for many of the reforms introduced after 1814 in public accounting and for simplifications effected in the organization of finances. In 1838 he drew up the famous Règlement générale sur la comptabilité publique, contained here in Volume V. Included in Volume IV are Le Budget; La Crise financière de 1848; and La Libération de la propriété ou réforme de l'administration des impôts directs et des hypothèques, all of which had been previously published in pamphlet form.
