Item #50083 The rights of labor. Calvin Colton.

The rights of labor

New York: A. S. Barmes & Co., 1846. 8vo, pp. 96; original tan paper wrappers; covers lightly chipped and toned, mild spotting to text, very good in a green clamshell box with a touch of fading to the spine. Colton was a champion of conservative causes, including slavery, and was described by a contemporary as "prolific, rather than profound." He argues here for protectionism and an expansion of manufacturing, responding to complaints about the stagnation in wages with, "It is a blessing to the laborors to have work." Item #50083
