What Our Customers Say...
ESTC Citation No. R10786. Wing S4197
With the register [A1], K-2, L. Collated, complete.
A very scarce pamphlet regarding the Popish Plot, a fictitious conspiracy that gripped England and Scotland in anti-Catholic hysteria between the years 1678 and 1681. English priest Titus Oates fabricated the existence of a massive Catholic conspiracy to assassinate King Charles II, which led to the execution of over twenty innocent men.
Newgate chaplain Samuel Smith describes his interactions with fourteen executed men who were falsely accused of involvement in the plot, presenting 'a confutation of their appeals, courage, and cheerfulness, at execution'. He details the confessions of men including Thomas Whitbread, Richard Langhorne and John Fenwick, all victims of the fictitious plot.
Unbound, as issued. Light handling marks to front wrap. Internally, firmly bound. Pages lightly age toned, with only the odd spot.
