London: Printed for H.D. Symonds, [III] ...and Thomas Clio Rickman, 1792. Three works in one volume, iv, 78, (2), vii, (i), 91, (3, 2 blank), 40 pp. Some mostly light spotting and marks. Modern quarter sheep, marbled sides. An instant bestseller on its publication in 1791, its radical views on everything from monarchy to welfare plus its defence of the French Revolution led eventually to Paine's exile. One of the most influential political tracts ever, it was dedicated to George Washington - "That the Rights of Man may become as universal as your benevolence can wish, and that you may enjoy the happiness of seeing the New World regenerate the Old..." Gimbel p.91, variant e; p.106-7, the catchwords not agreeing with any of the variants & pp.73-4. Item #31559
