About this Item

Clandestinely published, this treatise details many political failings of kings James I and Charles I; written as a sequel to a similar work on kings James II and Charles II because "there are not a few, who, tho' they seem to decry the Tyrannies of the two late kings, yet approve of much the same actions of the two that proceeded them." According to the ESTC, this work is sometimes attributed to bookseller Nathaniel Crouch (who employed the pseudonyms R.B., Robert Burton, and Richard Burton) and to John Phillips (1631?1706). The piece was later rewritten as part 1 of "The secret history, of the four last monarchs of Great-Britain" (Wing C7346). Provenance: The library of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 12mo (14.5 cm; 5.75"). [12], 167, [1] pp. ESTC R32638; Wing (rev. ed.) S2339. Modern brown marbled paper?covered boards, gilt black leather spine label, new endpapers. Ex-library as above: rubber-stamps on title-page and one leaf of text, pencilled call number and five digit accession number stamped on title-page verso. Limited tears on two leaves with loss of some paper but not text, one leaf with small hole, a gathering or two with bent corners, crescent moon dust-soiling along top margins of a few more; old waterstaining in varying degrees that never weaken paper (or impair reading) to most gutters extending variously across text (and across that dust-soiling), light to moderate age-toning. => Despite the staining to be noted, a nice, neat, and appealing little book.
