The Present Interest of England; or, A confutation of the Whiggish conspiratours anti-monyan principle, shewing from reason and experience the ways to make the government safe, the king great, the people happy, money plentifull, and trade flourish.
London: printed for Thomas Dring, 1683. Small quarto (205 x 155 mm). Disbound pamphlet, earlier sew-holes in margins. 5 cm repaired closed tear to title page, title and terminal page soiled, title page and a few other leaves with very light paper faults at extremities without affecting text, generally clean internally with a few sporadic fox marks. A good copy. First edition. The Tory Church of England clergyman John Nalson (1637-1686) "was a prolific writer as well as a country clergyman and his platform, in his own words, was consistently that of a 'true Church of England King's Protestant'. Nalson unswervingly indulged these convictions in a stream of publications which gushed forth in the unsettled years 1677 to 1685. His style was trenchant, hard-hitting, polemical, vivid, and vitriolic" (ODNB). The present publication is part of his anti-Whig writings, claiming that they are republican conspirators, which he ties into tirades against popery, and his own proposals for England. ESTC R16235. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
