What Our Customers Say...
An Important Work, Early Edition, Leather Binding
A sammelband of five pamphlet treatises by Thomas Paine.
'Rights of Man', Parts I and II, published by H. D. Symonds in London in 1792, early editions published in the same year as the first. One leaf of adverts to the rear of Part I.
'Two Letters to Mr. Henry Dundas with Two Letters to Lord Onslow', published by L. Wayland in London in 1792.
'Common Sense', published by J. Ridgway in London in 1792, a new edition of this work
'The Decline and Fall of the English System of Finance', published by Hartley, Adlard and Son in Paris in 1796. Half-title present.
'Rights of Man' is a massively influential work, written in the midst of the French Revolution. The work is a collection of articles that attacks Edmund Burke's 1790 work 'Reflections of the Revolution in France'. Burke's work was an intellectual attack on the Revolution. Paine argues that political revolution is permissible when a government doesn't safeguard the rights of its people.
'Common Sense' is equally influential, advocating independence from Britain, published at the beginning of the American Revolution. Upon publication it became an immediate sensation, being read aloud in taverns and meeting places.
