About this Item

Generally attributed to Francis Hare, Bishop of Chichester, but also attributed to Jonathan Swift, this anonymously published political analysis expresses concern not only that putting the Duke of Anjou on the Spanish throne would tilt the balance of power in Europe too far towards France, but also that such action would greatly damage the livelihoods of English textile workers, among others dependent on international commerce; also questioned are Swift's views on the ramifications of trade with Portuguese America. This is the second, expanded edition. 8vo (20.8 cm, 8.25"). vi, 42 pp. ESTC T58140; Alden & Landis, European Americana, 711/126; Teerink-Scouten 1034. Blue-green paper wrappers, old style. Title-page with small numeric stamp, faint traces of other annotations. Small area of worming in inner margins, touching a very few letters. A few scattered spots, otherwise clean; edges untrimmed.
