About this Item

First edition. Cheetham, once a friend of Paine, later turned against him, and this work reflects a great deal of bitterness and resentment: The author makes much of Paine's alleged lack of personal cleanliness. A pseudonymous "Politicus," in an attempt to encourage the writing of another life, said "Cheetham, humph! Now should it not rather be spelled Cheat'em, as applicable to every reader of that farrago of imposition and malignity, miscalled the ?Life of Paine'?" Provenance: Pencilled note on endpaper, "From Ralph E. McCoy's Library"; McCoy, emeritus Dean of Libraries at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, published widely on the First Amendment freedoms. 8vo (22.2 cm, 8.75"). 347, [1] pp. Howes C336; Sabin 12379; Shaw & Shoemaker 17193. Later quarter plain brown paper over contemporary tan paper?covered sides; edges and corners rubbed. Front free endpaper (modern) with pencilled note of McCoy's ownership; front fly-leaf with pencilled gift inscription dated 1849. Offsetting and foxing throughout. A very sound copy.
