The Rights of Man, as exhibited in a Lecture read at the Philosophical Society in Newcastle

Spence's token 'Noted Advocates for the Rights of Man'

The main body of this pamphlet is a reworking of Thomas Spence's lecture Property in Land Everyone's Right first published in Newcastle in 1775, eighteen years earlier. The fundamental text has stayed unchanged, as has the basic economic idea of the ownership of all land by parishes, but there is a new emphasis on social and political change.
