Common Sense by Thomas Paine

Published in London in 1776

Published in 1776, Common Sense challenged the authority of the British government and the royal monarchy. The plain language that Paine used spoke to the common people of America and was the first work to openly ask for independence from Great Britain.

Ahhh, the Thomas Paine book is the one I want.
Just TRY and find Paine's "Common Sense" in ANY bookstore. You cannot do it. It is not stocked.
How awesome it would be to have THIS one, this ancient one here. WOW!
Common Sense is one of those books I always look for in a bookstore. I know I can order it, but I want to FIND it, fair and square one day. Rather than order it!
Great site here.
Interesting stuff.
