New. $65. * Reprint of the third edition. One of the most famous defenses of freedom of the press, this pamphlet was originally issued in 1764 after John Wilkes fled to Europe after his condemnation by Parliament for seditious libel in 1764. Notable for emphasizing the distinction between words and deeds, it anticipated Erskine's unsuccessful defense of Thomas Paine, who was charged with seditious libel after the publication of his Rights of Man (1791). This pamphlet is usually attributed to John Almon [1737-1805], a journalist and writer on political subjects. He is best known for his efforts to secure the right to report debates in Parliament.
