About this Item

Self-proclaimed "second American edition" printed "from a London copy of the Paris edition" ? and, uncommon. Paine on his favorite subject of criticism ? the English. Here he points out that the English financial system is on the brink of bankruptcy, and identifies acts of banking folly to be held responsible for getting it into that state. Written at a time when Paine was in France and still deeply involved in the revolutionary cause, the essay caused no small amount of controversy when it first appeared in Paris and then subsequently in London in April of 1796. With the leaf of advertisements for "new publications for sale by John Fellows." Provenance: Signature of "Geo. Wilson jr," dated 1880, inked to title-page. 12mo (18.5 cm; 7.25"). 58 pp., [1 (ads)] f., without the half-title. Evans 30944; ESTC W20110 & T5824. Uncut copy, without the half-title, stitched in modern plain wrappers; dust-soiled and age-toned with old dampstains. Ownership signature as above on title; pencilled note on verso (not in the same hand), "bad effect on bank of connection with gov't." A good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 29899
