About this Item

8vo, pp. (iv), 351. Bound in modern calf, spine gilt over original marble boards. A very nice clean tight copy. Contemporary ownership signature of Dr. Webb on the title-page, a few inked marginal comments as well. Mackintosh was a philosopher born in 1765. In answer to Burke's Reflections on the French Revolution he wrote Vindici' Gallic'. Burke had been answered by Thomas Paine, but Macintosh's reply, taking a less radical ground, and showing much literary and philosophical culture, was the most effective defence of the position of the Whig sympathisers of the revolution." It was partly translated by the Duke of Orleans (later Louis-Philippe). Macintosh's revolutonary ardor was cooled by the events in France and he later became an ardent admirer of Burke. Mackintoch later attacked Godwin and was rewarded by conservative forces with the facilities for his teaching a course in law. Bookseller Inventory # 32992
