Scarce broadside: Bitterly sarcastic commentary on the brusque and ungrateful ouster of a "heroick" parliamentary ministry, on the new ministry's idiotic and wicked conduct of the current conflict between England and France, and other contemporary political events, phrased in the form of rhetorical questions and here reprinted from a London broadside dated by various sources to either 1696 or 1710. (It's an interesting exercise to parse the text closely for clues that point to the one date or the other ? while observing how well, indeed, the rant would suit either!) Searches of ESTC, WorldCat, and NUC Pre-1956 locate only => two copies ? one in Scotland, one in England. Folio (30.8 cm, 12.1").  pp. ESTC T168050.

Some letters in header cut off at top due to printer's error. Tipped onto a blank leaf bearing a watermark of 1826. Bookseller Inventory # 6515
