Description: [Jenyns, Soame.] THE OBJECTIONS TO THE TAXATION OF OUR AMERICAN COLONIES, BY THE LEGISLATURE OF GREAT BRITAIN, BRIEFLY CONSIDER'D. London: Printed for J. Wilkie, 1765. 8vo. 23 pp. 1/2 morocco over marbled boards, rebacked with spine laid on, some light scuffs and loss at corners. Contents quite clean, a Very Good example. ********************************************************* Second edition, printed the same year as the first, of this defense of the Stamp Act. Jenyns, a poet and member of Parliament, argues in favor of the right to tax the colonists and rejects various claims against British taxation. In a rather condescending tone Jenyns calls the arguments against the right to tax the colonists insolent and absurd. The pamphlet produced several strong responses by colonial sympathizers, including James Otis' CONSIDERATIONS ON BEHALF OF THE COLONISTS, also printed in 1765. SABIN 36053. HOWES J103. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 65-13b.
