David, H. (1742). Of the Rise and Progress of the Arts and Sciences. Retrieved from

Description: A collection of pieces written and published over many years. Many of the essays are focused on topics in politics and economics, though they also range over questions of aesthetic judgement, love, marriage and polygamy, and the demographics of ancient Greece and Rome, to name just a few of the topics considered. The Essays show some influence from Addison's Tatler and The Spectator, which Hume read avidly in his youth
