About this Item

Author Johnson (1649?1703) was a clergyman and pamphleteer who spent time in prison ostensibly for having written his very popular Julian the Apostate, but really because his patron, Lord Russell, was executed as a conspirator in the Rye House matter thus painting him with the same brush ? and because he could not pay a fine of 500 marks. "In 1692 Johnson published what he hoped would be recognized as the quintessential interpretation of the events of 1688. His pamphlet, An argument proving that the abrogation of King James by the people of England . . . was according to the constitution of the English government, went into five editions in 1693 alone, and was translated into Dutch. Even Johnson's enemies recognized that this latest ?pamphlet of renown has fill'd every tongue in town'" (Canonical Statesman's Grand Argument Discussed, 3, quoted in the ODNB). This is a copy of the issue with the one-line imprint and the correct pagination. The last leaf is a "catalogue" of the author's books. Small 4to (20 cm; 8"). 62 pp., [1] f. ESTC R226875; Wing (rev. ed.) J821. Modern marbled pape?covered boards. Text browned and foxed, as with most copies seen; paper yet strong and good. A very decent copy. Bookseller Inventory # 33471
