The Two Treatises of Civil Government (Hollis ed.)

Title page

Locke’s most famous work of political philosophy began as a reply to Filmer’s defense of the idea of the divine right of kings and ended up becoming a defense of natural rights, especially property rights, and of government limited to protecting those rights. This 1764 edition is famous for being the edition which was widely read in the American colonies on the eve of the Revolution.

Two Treatises of Government, ed. Thomas Hollis (London: A. Millar et al., 1764).
