First edition, written by Carlile (1790-1843) during his incarceration in Dorchester prison. ‘His greatest contribution to the radical cause, and the most momentous, was his republishing of the writings of Tom Paine, which he did serially in the Weekly, individually as cheap pamphlets, and also as bound volumes. Carlile rapidly became the most successful popularizer of Paine since the 1790s, and followed this later with a biography, The Life of Thomas Paine (1820)’ (ODNB).

A beautiful set of this small format edition of the principal philosophical works of the Scottish enlightenment philosopher Thomas Reid (1710–1796). The collection, which first appeared in this form in 1812, includes, besides Reid’s first major work, his works on the faculties of the mind, Intellectual (1785), and Active Powers of Man (1788), together with the essay On Quantity and the Analysis of Aristotle’s Logic. The Essay on Quantity appears here for the first time since its original publication in the Philosophical Transactions (1748), whilst the Analysis had appeared earlier only as part of Kames’ Sketches (1806 edition).
