Description: Taylor, John, of Caroline. CONSTRUCTION CONSTRUED, AND CONSTITUTIONS VINDICATED. Richmond: Shepherd and Pollard, 1820. 8vo. [2], iv, 344 pp. Period full sheep with title on label in gilt, hinges cracked, boards/spine with scuffs, edgewear. Early ink signatures to boards and to title-page, contents with scattered foxing and some edge-toning near front and back, one leaf with marginal chip (no loss), else Very Good. **************************************************** An important work by America's great proponent of agrarian liberalism. Taylor was an important Constitutional theorist and states' rights advocate. He believed the greatest danger to American democracy lay in consolidation and in the creation of an aristocracy of "paper and patronage." This work is one of several in which Taylor sets forth his theory of the U.S. Constitution and related federal government policies (e.g. taxation, banking, and tariffs). It is also one of his rarest works. HOWES T59, "aa." SABIN 94486. HAYNES 18132. DAB XVIII, pp.331-33.
