Rights of Man: being an Answer to Mr Burke's Attack on the French Revolution. Part I.
Printed for J.S. Jordan. 1792 [Part II]. Printed for H.D. Symonds. Two parts in one. iv, 78pp, bound without final ad. leaf; vii, [2], 10-91, [3]pp appendix, lacks final ad. leaf. 12mo. Cheap coarse paper; old but not intrusive waterstaining, occasional dusting. Bound in contemporary calf-backed marbled boards, vellum fore-edges; boards rubbed & neatly rebacked. Michael Foot's copy with his signature & note on front endpaper.ESTC N13084, not in BL. This issue has no price below the date on the titlepage. T5879 is the variant with the final page of text numbered 91, and the last line of the second page of the Appendix beginning: corruption and taxation. The first part was initially published by Johnson in February of 1791, but it was suppressed immediately and is of the greatest rarity. The first edition available for public sale was issued by Jordan in March, who inserted a cancelled titlepage with his own imprint. The second part was brought out in London by Jordan on February 16th 1792. Thomas Paine prepared two combined editions of the work, containing both parts, the first being a cheaply produced publication by Symonds. Because of the risk of prosecution certain passages were omitted and replaced by asterisks, the missing content being alluded to in footnotes. The other 'combined' edition was prepared during his imprisonment in France and published by Daniel Isaac Eaton in 1795. This present copy appears to have been bound together at the time, but combines Jordan and Symonds printings, both on the same paper, and both with the asterisks and footnotes.
