What Our Customers Say...
The third edition of this work. ESTC T125879. Published anonymously, attributed to Denis O'Bryen, Irish surgeon, dramatist, and political writer.
A very scarce pamphlet written in support of the Whigs in the Regency crisis of 1788. Rarely seen in commerce in any edition.
Works by O'Bryen include: A gleam of comfort to this distracted empire, demonstrating the fairness and reasonableness of national confidence in the present ministrymeaning the ministry of Pitt (1784); A View of the Commercial Treaty with France (1786); Lines Written at Twickenham (1788), followed in the same year by the anonymously published The Prospect Before Us, being a series of papers upon the great question which now agitates the public mind, which was reproduced under the title The Regency Question with a new preface, in consequence of the return of the king's insanity in 1810. In 1796 he published Utrum horum The Government or the Country which rapidly passed through three editions.
O'Bryen's political writings reflected his activism as a supporter of the Fox administration.
