Notes

Unacknowledged translation of a first unpublished version/draft of Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason (1794). Paine is not listed as the author, but Lanthenas is. This incomplete version is an attack on Catholicism and religion, and does not include the overt promotion of deism of the first published edition of the work (1794). Includes a 'Tableau frappant' by citizen Néez.
