A REVIEW OF THE LETTER ADDRESSED BY WILLIAM ALEXANDER DUER, ESQUIRE, TO CADWALLADER COLDEN, ESQUIRE, IN ANSWER TO STRICTURES CONTAINED IN HIS 'LIFE OF ROBERT FULTON,' RELATIVE TO STEAM NAVIGATION. WITH AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING THE ACTS OF THE LEGISLATURE

by [Sullivan, John L.?]

Condition: See description


New York, 1818. Stitched and untrimmed. 27, [1 blank] pp. Lightly tanned, Very Good. Rink notes that the pamphlet is "sometimes attributed to J.L. Sullivan," certainly a reasonable guess: Sullivan, Fulton's rival, opposed New York State's exclusive grant to Fulton; and Duer, armed with impressive facts and legal arguments, agreed with Sullivan. This pamphlet, with Duer's help, rebuts the factual and legal bases for Fulton's monopoly. New York's judiciary, per Chief Justice Kent, had upheld the Legislature's power to vest a monopoly in Fulton. Sullivan and Duer spent bitter years in opposition; their conflict provides a wealth of material for historians. Rink 3621. AI 45525 [5]. Cohen 14735. See Howes D539 for a similar item.
