London: T. Cadell, 1785. [Political Philosophy] EARLY EDITION. Octavo (22 x 14cm), pp.[2] viii; 156 [4]. Recent speckled calf with raised bands and gilt titles to red label on spine. Library stamp to p.1, title page washed, some annotation to p.153. Some toning and spotting to textblock. Very good. A pamphleteer preacher based in London, Price became instantly famous (or infamous) for his 1776 publication 'Observations on the Nature of Civil Liberty, the Principles of Government, and the Justice and Policy of the War with America', which supported the Revolution in the American Colonies, and encouraged the idea of a formal declaration of independence. In this work, first published in 1784, he looks to the future of the newly independent colonies and the constitutional challenges they would have to face. Item #52359
