Seeking cheaper labor and products prohibited...

Item # 648915

January 5, 1768

THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, January 5, 1768  The front page has a clear warning to Artificers and Manufactures who have been going to foreign lands which are not under English rule to solicit cheaper labor, materials, and products. The warning includes extracts of two laws which make clear the unlawful nature of such actions, and reminds the Subjects of the Kingdom of the consequences which include both fines and imprisonment. Such actions were making it extremely difficult for law-abiding subjects from being competitive in the marketplace. Considerable details are given. This account is particularly interesting in light of current events. Other news of the day from throughout the world is also present.
Four pages, 7 by 11 1/2 inches, semi-rough left spine, overall nice condition.
