About this Item

Nicknamed "the Patriot," Lord William Russell should have been called "the Unlucky"; he was executed for his alleged role in the Rye House Plot of 1683,although "no reason exists for supposing [him] to have been cognisant of the desperate scheme for the assassination of the king and the Duke of York," according to the DNB. Here the condemned man sets down on paper "all that I think fit to leave behind me," which is an assertion of his innocence and his anti-Catholic beliefs. Folio (30.2 cm, 11.9"). 4 pp. ESTC R36940; Wing (rev. ed.) R2356A. On Russell, see: The Dictionary of National Biography. As issued, spine delicately reinforced. Pages age-toned and creased, with a few tiny pinpoint holes. Tissue repair to tear from inner margin extending across both leaves, touching but not obscuring a few letters. P. 2 with numerals in an early inked hand in the outer margin. Bookseller Inventory # 14472
