Mackintosh, James:

VINDICIAE GALLICAE. DEFENCE OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION AND ITS ENGLISH ADMIRERS AGAINST THE ACCUSATIONS OF THE RIGHT HON. EDMUND BURKE; INCLUDING SOME STRICTURES ON THE LATE PRODUCTION OF MONS. DE CALONNE.

William Young, Philadelphia: 1792 175, [1 publ. advt.] pp. Disbound. Ink signature clipped from blank upper fore-corner. Very Good. An Englishman who sided with the French Revolution, Mackintosh takes on its most articulate English critic, Edmund Burke. For Burke, "All was invective-- the authors, and admirers of the revolution-- every man who did not execrate it, even his own most enlightened and accomplished friends, were devoted to odium and ignominy." The author provides an in-depth defense with much detail and argument. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Evans 24495.
