1681 A Caution to All True English Protestants, Concerning the Late Popish Plot
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Very Scarce
ESTC Citation No. R36286. Wing C1558
With the register , A, B-C2. 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.
This work begins with the disclaimer that, upon a return from London, the author has been 'almost persuaded [...] that there is no such thing as a plot; and I really do very much question it, or at least as to a Popish one'.
This scarce first edition, arranged in the form of a dialogue, purports to be between an 'Old Queen-Elizabeth Protestant and his Country Neighbour', presents the argument for the veracity of the plot, and an opposition to this view.
Unbound, as issued. Discolouration and some residue to head of front and rear leaves. Edgewear to page perimeters. Internally, firmly bound. Pages age toned, with handling marks throughout. Faint ink numbers to head of each leaf.
