About This Item

2007. ISBN-13: 9781584778523; ISBN-10: 1584778520. A Famous Defense of Freedom of the Press [Father of Candor]. Almon, J[ohn], Attributed. A Letter Concerning Libels, Warrants, The Seizure of Papers, and Sureties for the Peace of Behaviour; with a View to some late Proceedings, and the Defence of them by the Majority. The Third Edition Enlarged and Improved. London: J. Almon, 1765. 112 pp. Reprinted 2007 by the Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584778523; ISBN-10: 1584778520. Hardcover. New. $65. * Reprint of the third edition. One of the most famous defenses of freedom of the press, this pamphlet was originally issued in 1764 after John Wilkes fled to Europe after his condemnation by Parliament for seditious libel in 1764. Notable for emphasizing the distinction between words and deeds, it anticipated Erskine's unsuccessful defense of Thomas Paine, who was charged with seditious libel after the publication of his Rights of Man (1791). This pamphlet is usually attributed to John Almon [1737-1805], a journalist and writer on political subjects. He is best known for his efforts to secure the right to report debates in Parliament.


Originally published: 3rd ed. enl. and improved. London : J. Almon, 1765. Authority disputed; usually ascribed to John Almon. First published in 1764 under title: An enquiry into the doctrine lately propagated, concerning libels, warrants, and the seizure of papers. On the trial of John Wilkes for libel published in the North Briton, no. 45, with an answer to Charles Lloyd's Defence of the majority in the House of Commons.
