What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition

The first edition of this important pamphlet.

William Ewart Gladstone's anti-Catholic pamphlet, a scathing diatribe against Catholics.

This attack was brought on by his outrage at the Vatican Council's decree of papal infallibility, this being his attempt to refute it.

Published in November 1874, this pamphlet sold 150,000 copies by the end of the year.

Gladstone was an important Victorian Liberal politician.
