London: G. G. and J. Robinson, . First Edition Attractively bound with good margins in modern calf-backed boards; xii, 481 pages. An important work by this philosopher published the same year that his wife, Mary Wollstonecraft, died shortly after giving birth to their daughter and future author of FRANKENSTEIN, Mary Shelley. He would later have some influence on his daughter's husband, Percy Shelley. Published several years after Godwin's THINGS AS THEY ARE, which some regard as the first modern novel. Godwin, "the philosophical representative of English radicalism" (DNB), also had the distinct honor of reading Thomas Paine's RIGHTS OF MAN in manuscript. Four small, discreet library stamps within text, ink number on verso of title with some bleed through; library perforated stamp to half title and title pages. Corner of one page torn with no loss of text (Item ID: 003797)
