About this Item

Original or nearly contemporary half calf, hubbed spine, over marbled paper covered boards. 171 pp. The Sixth Edition, so stated on the title page. Binding is well rubbed and worn, light foxing to the title page with the remainder of the text mostly clean with very little scattered foxing; the final page of text , which has been wrinkled and torn but is complete, is laid down on a contemporary blank. Bound without the half-title. One of Thomas Paine's three major works (the others being the 1776 pamphlet "Common Sense" and "The Age of Reason" 1795-1807), one that presents his theory that citizenry has the right to revolt when a government does not safeguard the natural rights of the people, a thematic continuance of the views he first expressed in "Common Sense". In this case, Paine defends the French Revolution, against attacks by Britian's Edmund Burke who had in 1790 published "Reflections on The Revolution In France". Paine published a second part of "Rights of Man" in 1792, a year after this part appeared. Bookseller Inventory # E18277
