        THE MOST SAD AND DEPLORABLE CASE OF ROBERT BLACKBURNE, JOHN BERNARDI, ROBERT CASSILLS, ROBERT MELDRUM, AND JAMES CHAMBERS. HUMBLY PRESENTED TO THE PARLIAMENT OF GREAT BRITAIN [caption title].

      [London? ca. ]. 1715 - Broadsheet, 14 x 8 1/2 inches. [2]pp. With ornamental initial on recto and and printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament to review the case of Robert Blackburne and others connected to the so-called "Lancashire Plot" who were imprisoned in London without charges, trial, or opportunity for habeas corpus. Robert Blackburne (d. 1748), a scion of prominent Roman Catholic families in Lancashire, and his companions were arrested in 1695 on suspicion of connection to an assassination plot against William III and held at Newgate prison, where "no person but our Jaylor and his Servants were permitted to speak with us. We were denied the Use of Pen, Ink, and Paper, debarred of all Comforts and Conveniences, and under great Hardships as to the very Necessaries of Life; out Confinement being so strict, that even our Food and Linnen were searched, to prevent the least Communication." When after many years of being held without trial they finally managed to enter a request for habeas corpus, their petition was denied because they had not claimed it during the first parliamentary session after their imprisonment. This, they note, had been impossible to do, as they had had no access to pen, paper, or friends beyond the prison walls. Around 1715, following the accession of King George I and the election of a new Whig Parliament, the prisoners learned of a new bill in Parliament which they hoped would at last secure their release. It apparently was never passed, and Robert Blackburne was never exonerated; he died after fifty-three years' imprisonment, never brought to trial. An early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons during the 1710s. Signed in print by Robert Blackburne, John Cassells, John Bernardi, Robert Meldrum, and J. Chambers. Rare, with ESTC recording only four copies, three in England and one at the Folger Library. Thomas Taaffe, "Robert Blackburne," in THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA, Vol. 2 (New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1907).

        THE CASE OF THE OFFICERS OF LIEUTENANT GENERAL HAMILTON'S LATE REGIMENT OF FOOT (SUBJECTS OF GREAT-BRITAIN) BROKE IN THE SERVICE OF THE STATES GENERAL OF THE UNITED PROVINCES [caption title]

      [London, 1715. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament by the officers of Lieutenant General George Hamilton's Regiment of Foot, seeking pay due for services abroad in the War of Spanish Succession. Lord George Douglas-Hamilton (1666-1737), was a Scottish Williamite officer during the Glorious Revolution who later married William III's mistress, Elizabeth Villiers, became a confidant of William, was created Earl of Orkney in 1696, was appointed Governor of Virginia in 1714, and in 1736 was the first British general promoted to the rank of Field Marshal. In 1701, at the beginning of the War of the Spanish Succession, Hamilton led the First Regiment of Foot (the Royal Scots) to the Netherlands, where the regiment fought for the remainder of the war. Despite their long service and the high position of Hamilton, the officers suggest in the present petition that, having been so long overseas, they had been forgotten by the British government and charge that they had not received their pay, even after frequent petitions. The document is an early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC records four copies, two at the British Library, one at Oxford, and one at the National Library of Scotland.

        THE CASE OF THOMAS HAMMOND, MERCHANT [caption title]

      [London, 1715. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of left margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament on behalf of Thomas Hammond, "a considerable Trader for Twenty Years last past in Wines, and other Merchandises," asking for public assistance in paying the remainder of his debts to the government. During the War of the Spanish Succession, Hammond suffered major losses to his trade and merchandise, resulting from the sinking of the ships, Thomas and Elizabeth, near Virginia; the capture of other ships sailing to India, the failures of various merchants, vintners, and coopers to pay him; and other "Losses at Home and Abroad." Unable to pay his own debts, Hammond absconded, but he was caught, imprisoned, and stripped of all his assets. The present document relates this history, tabulating his losses and the amounts he had already paid to his creditors through assets and sureties, and petitions the House of Commons to pass a bill allowing the Treasury to forgive his debts due for customs. Part of the earliest British literature relating to decriminalized bankruptcy, following the historic bankruptcy statute of Queen Anne of 1705, which granted the first modern provisions for the release of insolvent debtors from their debts. This is also among the earliest examples of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715.

        THE CASE OF THE WARRANT OFFICERS [caption title]

      [London, 1715. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Some foxing. Very good. A rare political leaflet petitioning Parliament for relief of warrant officers who had fought in the recent War of the Spanish Succession. In March 1715 the House of Commons ordered that a list of all the regimental and warrant officers be drawn up, but by the time this document was printed, numerous warrant officers had not been entered into the list and rumors had begun to circulate that they would therefore not be receiving expected compensation for their service. "Besides, the Nature of several of the Warrant Officers Posts was such, as they could not be put on a Regimental List, viz. Directors of Hospitals, Commissaries, Officers who have lost their Limbs, and many other Officers, whose particular Hardships, Pretensions, and Disappointments are more at large set forth and specify'd in their several Warrants. So that their Condition is very deplorable." This is among the earliest examples of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC lists only two copies, at Oxford and the University of Missouri. HANSON 2212.

Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Reliures en pleine basane marbrée d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de queue du tome I élimée, idem en tête du tome II. Mors supérieur du tome I fendu en tête. Mors du tome II ouvert en tête et en queue. Coins du tome I frottés. Manque en marge du frontispice du tome I. malgré les défauts cités, assez bon exemplaire, de bon aspect. Ex-libris manuscrit du célèbre bibliophile Jules Bobin. Pierre de Montmaur fut un personnage haut en couleur du XVIIe et se décrivait lui-même comme : Le plus grand parasite que le globe ait jamais porté ! Il hantait les salons dans l'idée de dîner et son appêtit semblait ne connaître aucune borne, malgré son extrême maigreur. Il avouait lui-même agir ainsi par avarice, et non content de s'en tenir à la nourriture, il affichait ostensiblement une incroyable pédanterie et attaquait tout le monde de ses épigrammes et ses bons mots, dont tout le monde des lettres fut victime. C'est ainsi que Ménage, Voiture, Sorel, d'Alibray furent raillés par lui et se lièrent pour répondre au moqueur par des pamphlets. L'ouvrage est non seulement composé de l'histoire de Pierre de Montmaur par Sallengres, mais également des écrits de ce dernier et de tous les textes satiriques que l'on a écrit sur lui, ainsi du Barbon de Guez de Balzac et Le parasite mormon de la Mothe Le Vayer. Montmaur ne fut pourtant jamais inquiété et continua à sévir, les nombreuses pensions qui lui furent accordées lui assurèrent un train de vie plus que convenable.

        THE CASE OF GREAT-BRITAIN, IN RELATION TO HIS MAJY.'S OFFICE OF ORDNANCE, REPRESENTED BY BENJAMIN WITHALL, ENGINEER [caption title].

      [London? ]. 1715 - Broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Small folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Some foxing. Very good. A rare political leaflet alleging frauds and abuses by the British Board of Ordnance in 1715, George I's first full year as king. The author, engineer Benjamin Withall, shows that the Office of Ordnance's estimate for land service for 1715, a year of peace, is more than triple that of 1714, the final year of the War of the Spanish Succession. Arguing that the budget should not be much more than one-fifth the present estimate of £170,991, Withall petitions Parliament to allow him to interrogate members of the Board regarding their "strange" and "marvellous" calculation. This is among the earliest examples of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC lists three copies, at the Goldsmiths' Company, University of London, and Oxford. HANSON 2176.

        The Gentleman Accomptant, or, An essay to unfold the mystery of accompts : by way of debtor and creditor, commonly called merchants accompts, and applying the same to the concerns of the nobility and gentry of England... The second edition.

      London: E. Curll, , 1715. Octavo (160 x 96 mm), pp. [2], v, [1] + 4pp. advertisments, 233, [7, contents]. Modern panelled sheep, antique style, spine blind-stamped in compartments. Folding table at p. 54. Ownership inscription "Samuel Bunting" dated 1723 at head of title. Advertisement leaves misbound. Some spotting and the odd rust spot, lightly toned; a very good copy. Second edition, first published in 1714, by the youngest son of Sir Dudley North. The style of North's discourse sets it apart from other literature of the period, being amusing and entertaining but nevertheless intelligent and informative. "North begins his work by explaining that through accidents he had discovered 'the wonderful virtue of a Regular Accompt' and as a result fallen in love with accounts .... North does not present bookkeeping as an easy subject to master and he stresses that it is practice rather than learning rules that is the guide to understanding." (Bywater and Yamey).
