Life of Algernon Sidney


Gilt on spine is still bright. Bookplate on front innerboard. Some edgewear, moderate to heavy foxing on many of the pages. Some light cover wear, corners a bit bumped. 5.5"x7.5" with 334 pages. The works of Algernon Sidney, along with those of contemporary John Locke, are considered a cornerstone of western thought. Sidney's most famous work, Discourses on Government, cost him his head. However, the ideas it put forth would survive and ultimately culminate in the founding of the United States. Algernon Sidney directly opposed the divine right of kings political theory by suggesting ideas such as limited government, voluntary consent of the people and the right of citizens to alter or abolish a corrupt government. His Discourses on Government have been called "the textbook of the American revolution."
