This paper considers two aspects of the interpretation of Cantillon's Essai sur la nature du commerce en général recently put forward by Anthony Brewer in his Richard Cantillon. Pioneer of Economic Theory: the first concerns Cantillon's treatment of land and his explanation of the origin of rent; the second concerns the relationship between Petty and Cantillon. Regarding the first aspect it is suggested that Brewer's interpretation does not accurately reflect the text of the Essai. Whereas regarding the second aspect it is suggested that its importance may be better appreciated by considering how a discussion contained in Law's Money and Trade might connect the fundamental analytical schemes which characterize Petty's and Cantillon's writings.
