Displaying Common Sense

A first edition of Thomas Paine’s 1776 pamphlet Common Sense is on display through January 20 at the Beinecke Library, along with other items from American history. The pages on view include Paine’s declaration that “the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America the law is king.”
