About this Item: Printed; New York: Re-printed by Hugh Gaine, at the Bible, in Hanover-Square, London, 1791. [4], 196 pp. 12mo. First American edition. The first edition was published the first of November 1790. [4], 196 pp. 12mo. M. Dupont, Burke's friend, had requested Burke's opinion on the French revolutionary movement, apparently assuming that the response would be encouraging. The "Reflections" carried his response and comments, which he intended as a warning for those of the English who were in agreement with the revolutionary policies and especially to the Revolutionary Society and the Constitutional Society. He spent a year writing the work and within a year of its publication it had been through eleven editions. Its reception was mixed, the King liked it, the Whigs, being pro-Revolutionary didn't, and the nation generally looked at the Revolution with a more critical eye. As time proved his warnings correct he was credited with being somewhat of a prophet. There were several written responses, including Thomas Paine's "Rights of Man" PMM 239 (first edition); Evans 23238 Later printed wrappers. Some light offsetting or browning, staining in the lower margin of several pages at the back, else an excellent copy. In a green cloth open end case First American edition. The first edition was published the first of November 1790. Seller Inventory # 65251

About this Item: London Printed for J. Dodsley, 1790. The Price of Revolution BURKE, Edmund. Reflections on the Revolution in France, and on the Proceedings in Certain Societies in London Relative to That Event. In a Letter Intended to Have Been Sent to a Gentleman in Paris. London: Printed for J. Dodsley, 1790. First edition (Todd's second edition, first impression) of Burke’s controversial attack on the French Revolution. Octavo. iv, 356 pp. Mid-nineteenth-century half brown calf over blue marbled boards. Gilt spine with raised bands and red morocco label. Edges sprinkled red. A little minor soiling. Ink annotation on p. 275. A very good, crisp copy. "In 1789 a common perception of the French Revolution was that a freedom and potential stability might ensue similar to that which had been achieved by war in the American Revolution. Burke was swift to point out the essential differences in the two movements: the American colonists had fought to preserve basic English liberties and institutions; the French revolutionaries wished not only to smash and eradicate the monarchy but to obliterate the most basic traditions" (Christie's New York, May 17, 1996, lot 8). "As the Terror grew, Burke seemed almost to be a prophet. In the eternal debate between the ideal and the practical, the latter had never had a more powerful or moving advocate, nor one whose own ideals were higher" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Published on 1 November 1790, Burke’s Reflections achieved immediate success. This copy is the second (published ca. 2 November 1790) of a number of impressions printed within days of each other, with only slight variations. Todd calls this the second edition, first impression ("Though in part identical with a, this may properly be called a new edition, since it is substantially of a new setting"). Grolier, 100 English, 63. Printing and the Mind of Man 239. Rothschild 522. Todd 53b. HBS 66466. $2,000. Seller Inventory # 66466
