Rights of Man. By Thomas Paine. Illustrated by Lynd Ward. Illustrated Edition. Heritage Press. New York, 1961.

$20.00

Rights of Man, first published in 1791, is a powerful argument for political revolution in general, but especially where there is tyranny or ineffective government. It contains Thomas Paine’s blunt, irrefutable style of argumentation–that which made him one of the most convincing advocates for democracy during both the American and French Revolutions. Without this work, the political landscape of the last 400 years would not be the same. It is plausible that without Paine, French and American revolutionaries would never have achieved public support.

This illustrated edition is in good condition. In the original marbled cloth boards, good with small tears and bumping to spine ends. Spine lightly faded. Text block fine. Without the original slipcase. With the publisher’s Sandglass pamphlet laid in.

A good illustrated edition of Rights of Man.
