London: Ric. Chiswell at the Rose and Crown, 1688. First edition. Pamphet. Disbound. Title, preface, a dedication to the Queen Regent (written by "the Maids of St Joseph") the text of the prerogatives. This is in fact an anti-catholic pamphlet from William Clagett. William Clagett (1646–1688) was an English clergyman and pamphleteer, particularly active during the reign of James II. As well as his own pamphlets, he would translate particularly colourful Continental Catholic material, with the aim of making the Catholics an object of ridicule. This is one of those pieces.
A nice copy of this pamphlet. Apart from a a few slight marks, the pamphlet is clean and crisp throughout and well bound together.[ii] i-xv, [i], [vi], 1-20. pp. WING A108.
