Title: An Enquiry into the Duties of Men in the Higher and Middle Classes of Society in Great Britain, resulting from their respective stations, professions, and employments. The Fifth Edition, Corrected.
Description: London: Printed by A. Strahan...for J. White...and Cadell and Davies..., 1800. 2 volumes. 8vo, pp. xv [xvi blank], 461 [462 blank, 463 adverts, 464 blank]; xii, 546, including half-title in each volume, contemporary half calf, morocco labels, marbled boars; lacks numbering pieces, label on volume 1 defective, some of marbled paper missing from edges of boards, slight evidence of damp on end-papers. Gisborne's enquiry is wide-ranging, taking in the duties of the Sovereign, of Englishmen in general, members of the government, the military, the legal profession, the clerical profession, physicians, and businessmen. A commentary on David Hume's essay on miracles creeps into this discussion of the duties of physicians, and he judiciously cites Adam Smith when writing about the duties of persons engaged in trade and business.
