What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Very Scarce

Published as a part of England's Liberties Defended. 

This work is against the process of Catholic Emancipation in the United Kingdom. The Roman Catholic Relief Act was passed in 1829 and allowed members of the Catholic Church to sit in parliament in Westminster.

Disbound, as issued. 

The first and only edition of this political pamphlet which gives an account of Thorp's speech delivered at Queen's Square, Bristol. Thorp believed that the members of the Roman Catholic church should not be allowed to sit in parliament and he states 'a Protestant Parliament, and a Protestant Administration; but stop here. Beyond this mark is double Treason; Treason against the MAjesty of the King, and treason against the liberties of the people. 

A fascinating piece of British history, and one perspective of the political changes at the start of the nineteenth century. 

Condition

Disbound, as issued. Externally, sound. First leaf is detached but present. Internally, generally firmly bound though strained in places. Pages are generally bright with just the odd spot.

Very Good
