About this Item

Statements regarding the position of William III of England on Scottish "Religion, Laws and Liberties," affirming his defense of the Presbyterian government of the Church of Scotland. In their speeches, both the Duke of Queensberry and the Earl of Marchmont urge acquiescence to the king's desire that troops be raised and supplied as a response to "the Warlike Preparations which are made both for Land and Sea, by other Neighbouring Princes and States," as Lord Polwarth puts it. There is at least one other variant of the first piece, also printed in 1700, "For A.H." according to its colophon. It seems likely that the two speeches were in the present case issued together ? the paper and type match, and the second speech is paginated "(2)" ? although these examples were later separated and existing cataloguing records are inconsistent regarding the number of leaves that should be present. => Sets of the two pieces together are scarce. Folio (31 cm, 12.1"). 2 ff. ESTC R182313 / R33479; Goldsmiths'-Kress 03732; Wing (rev. ed.) Q160. Removed from a nonce volume. Leaves darkened and creased, both lower margins irregularly torn with loss of approximately 20 words. First speech with nick affecting two letters of the title. Bookseller Inventory # 18234
