Customer Question

My wife and I have found a book entitled "The Laws of Nature and Nations of Morals, Jurisprudence and Politics", 5th edition. My understanding is that this was a series of 8 "books" that were originally written in Latin and later transcribed into English in the 18th century. It appears that this book was published in about 1748. The front and back covers (leather) have detached but are otherwise in good shape.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

I can't find records of the fifth edition. I do see that the fourth edition, circa 1929, is listed for sale at retail (through dealers) in prices ranging from $750 to $1500.

Who is the "printed for:" on the title page? J. and J. Knapton, or J. Walthoe, or some other company?
