Joining the Fray: Mapping a World of Paine

Center for Digital Scholarship

This digital gallery was created by the Center for Digital Scholarship.

This graph contextualizes a selection of digitized cartoons, portraits, and broadsides from the Colonel Richard Gimbel Collection of Thomas Paine Papers.

The reception, reputation, and reactions to Paine are charted in Joining the Fray: Mapping a World of Paine. Particular attention is paid to the printers and publishers who often risked their safety to make these works available, as well as the members of extra-parliamentary associations demanding reform in the age of Paine.
