Edition: First Edition

Exeter: Devon County Club / R. Cullum: 1821. First Edition / First issue of this pamphlet. Printed by R. Cullum of Exeter. Sewn. No outside binding. Pages 1-16 are comprised of Jones' speech, and pages 17-24 are notes in favour of Emancipation. Although a church of England curate, Jones (1791-1857) was strongly in favour of Catholic Emancipation. As he put it, he would "rather drag out my existence within the walls of a dungeon, than give up the maintenance of the sacred cause of HUMAN LIBERTY." Such opinions cost him advancement in the church, although the Earl of Shrewsbury eventually gave him a benefice. Jones was born at Chudleigh, Devon, where no doubt he was aware at least of the Clifford family. Jones was also an antiquarian, writing several books on the history, and natural history of Devon. 24 pp.
