Sobre commercio e porto-franco.

£40

Lisbon, Na Impressão Liberal, 1822.

Description

8vo.  22, (1) pp.  Wrappers.   Copy partly unopened.   Some spotting & discolouration.

The author promotes granting Lisbon the status of a free port to increase its import-export trade.   The opening in 1808 of Brazilian ports to foreign ships had revolutionized foreign trade with that country, and the author proposes that Lisbon should follow suit since, instead of Lisbon, foreign shipping chose Gibraltar or Genoa as their destination for transhipping goods.   Innocêncio describes the author as being a French merchant in Lisbon.   

Innocêncio X, 19.
