Inhaltsangabe: Thomas Paine. His writings have been before the world for the past hundred years, and as long as men love liberty and earnest, straightforward speech, so long will the words of Thomas Paine be read. The task of editing this present issue of the Rights of Man has not been exactly a light one, for on comparing the modern editions with one of 1791 I found them very faulty ;words are left out altogether, wrong words substituted for right, whole paragraphs (amounting in all to several pages) omitted, and even a sentence interpolated. The interpolated sentence was evidently originally intended as a footnote, but in printing it became carried into the text, where, as an utterance of the year i79i it is singularly out of place. On comparing some of the early editions I found that these also varied a little, the variations in some cases being due to Paines own corrections. In order to present the best reading possible, I have consulted theist edition (J ohnson s, 1791), the 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, and 8th (J ordan s, 1791 and 1792), Symonds cheap edition (1792) which I am informed by Mr. M. D. Conway was carefully revised by Paine himself a Dublin edition (P. Byrne, 1791), the 2nd French edition (B uisson, 1793), Carlile s(1819), a New York edition (1830), a Glasgow edition (1833), Cousins (1837), Edward Truelove s, James Watson sedition (published by himself, Holyoake Co., and Frederick Farrah), the Freethought Publishing Company s(1883), J. M. Wheeler s(1891), and M. D. Conway s(1894). Fourteen of these I have compared word for word, and the remainder I have looked through most carefully. The earliest in which I found verbal alterations (probably for the most part due to careless press reading) was the Watson edition ;those which followed (I do not include Mr. Truelove s, which is undated, nor Mr. Conway s) contain not only the errors of the Watson edition, but variati
