Pamphlet, 8vo, removed and disbound, 90, [34 pp. Some foxing, soiling, and darkening, and light staining; good to about very good. Thomas Paine (1737-1809) career as a political activist, pamphleteer, and journalist made him a colorful character during his time. His writings inspired American soldiers during the Revolutionary War, but his views on the French Revolution made him unpopular in Europe. This work, The Rights of Man was a response to criticism of the French Revolution. In part two of his work he discusses the principals of government, and presents a case for a constitutional Republic. However, his refusal to endorse the execution of Louis XVI landed him in a French prison. ushistory.org/paine. (Inventory #: 106379)
