Description: Taylor, John [of Caroline]: ARATOR, BEING A SERIES OF AGRICULTURAL ESSAYS, PRACTICAL AND POLITICAL: IN SIXTY-FOUR NUMBERS. BY... PRESIDENT OF THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF VIRGINIA. SIXTH EDITION, REVISED AND ENLARGED. Petersburg: Printed by Whitworth & Yancey, for John M. Carter, 1818. 7" x 4". xi, [1], [13]-239, [1]. Bound in modern buckram. Light to moderate foxing and toning, a couple of leaves with small marginal chips, else Very Good. ******************************************* First printed in Washington in 1813, by "the champion of local democracy and one of the first and clearest spokesmen of state rights." DAB. Taylor, like other Jeffersonians, calls agriculture "the guardian of liberty, as well as the mother of wealth. So long as the principles of our government are uncorrupted, and the sovereignty of majorities remains, she must occupy the highest political station, and owe to society the most sacred political duty." Chapters on slavery call it "a misfortune to agriculture, incapable of removal, and only within the reach of palliation." Manumission has only made things worse, by creating a "race or nation of people between the masters and the slaves, having rights extremely different from either, called free negroes and mulattoes." Rink 1202. Swem 5457. Not in Work, Blockson, LCP.
