About this Item

In June 1762, John Wilkes (1727?1797) founded a weekly newspaper with Charles Churchill, entitled The North Briton, in opposition to the administration of Prime Minister Bute and his close friend, king Charles III. After weeks of attacks, one article in North Briton No. 45 (23 April 1763) so angered the king and his ministers that they decided to prosecute Wilkes for seditious libel. On 30 April, Wilkes was arrested and his papers seized. However, he was soon after discharged by Lord Chief Justice Pratt on the ground of privilege for members of parliament. 8vo. [4 (2 blank)], 31, [1 (blank)] pp. ESTC T2628. Removed from a nonce volume. Half-title and back page soiled; half-title also torn and with small hole resulting in the loss of one letter of printing; one corner of back page torn away, short tears to top outer corners throughout. Rubber stamps of the Franklin Institute Library inside. Foxed, age-toned. Bookseller Inventory # 5592
