POSTLETHWAYT (Malachy) [SAVARY]: The Universal Dictionary of Trade and Commerce,
translated from the French of the Celebrated Monsieur Savary.. With Large Additions and Improvements, Incorporated Throughout the Whole Work; which more particularly accommodate the same to the Trade and Navigation of these Kingdoms, and the Laws, Customs and Usages to which all Traders are Subject, by Malachy Postlethwayt, second edition, 2 volumes, fine engraved frontispiece to volume one, xxviii, 2, 1018; viii, 856pp very large tall folio, with 24 very fine large folding engraved world maps and 26 large folding tables and charts, contemporary full calf, rehinged with original spine laid down, original labels retained, an excellent copy, London, Knapton, 1757. PHOTOGRAPH AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. Kress 5645. McCulloch p.52 & 61. This edition not in Goldsmith (but see 8594). Second edition of this famous dictionary on eighteenth-century trade and commerce which was first published in 1751-5. Although attributed to Postlethwayt, as stated in the title the work is largely a translation of Jacques Savary des Bruslons' Dictionnaire Universel de Commerce which was published posthumously in 1723 by his brother Louis-Philemon. 'This was the first work of the kind that appeared in modern Europe; and has furnished the principal part of the materials for most of those by which it has been followed' (McCulloch). Postlethwayt (who also wrote several pamphlets on the African trade), wrote on the financial condition of the country from the standpoint of seeking its improvement. He substantially enlarged and improved Savary's dictionary by adding matters relevant to Britain and its Empire and in this form the work met with great success in the commercial world. Postlethwayt died in 1767, by which time three editions of his Dictionary had appeared. THE 24 SUPERB MAPS BY THOMAS KITCHIN and D'ANVILLE comprise 4 of Europe; 4 of North America; 3 of South America; 8 of Asia and 5 of Africa. They are double page or larger (folding).
