THE APOSTLE OF LIBERTY PRIESTLEY, Joseph.
A discourse on occasion of the death of Dr. Price; delivered at Hackney, on Sunday, May 1, 1791.
First edition of this moving tribute to the philosopher, demographer, and political radical Richard Price (1723-1791), by his close friend Joseph Priestley. ‘The most august assembly in the world, by which I wish to be understood the National Assembly of France, have justly styled him the apostle of liberty’, Priestley writes (p. 8). The work ends with a short biography of Price and an account of his publications.
A perplexed philosopher, being an Examination of Mr. Herbert Spencer’s various Utterances on the Land Question, with some incidental Reference to his synthetic Philosophy.
First edition of George’s examination of Spencer’s stance on the land question. Asking the reader ‘to judge for himself Mr. Spencer’s own public declarations’ (p. 8), the political economist, popular orator, and politician Henry George (1839-1897) dismantles the arguments of the British liberal theorist Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) to promote his radical views on land redistribution: ‘George wanted radical redistribution but without revolution. He pioneered the idea that taxation, properly crafted, can redistribute wealth without damage to the market. His influence on Fabianism was early and wide; also on American reformers like Tom L. Johnson, Upton Sinclair, John R. Commons and Norman Thomas. The modern “mixed economy” is in the Georgist spirit of reform within traditional forms’ (Palgrave II, p. 515).
