A true account and declaration of the horrid conspiracy against the late king, His present Majesty, and the government: as it was order'd to be published by His late Majesty... 'Copies of the Informations and Original Papers Relating to the Proof of the Horrid conspiracy against the Late King'
[London] In the Savoy: Thomas Newcomb, 1685. 1685 1ed Assassination King Charles II England Rye House Plot 2in1 Thomas SpratA first-hand account of the plot to assassinate King Charles II!Thomas Sprat was involved with one of the most controversial conspiracies in 17th-century Britain. The Rye House Plot was a plan, in 1683, to assassinate King Charles II and his brother James II. This book includes two works, and the two were intended to be published together. According to Lowndes,"This [work] is always considered a discreditable production, and the author himself completely destroyed all its pretensions to authenticity; for in letters which he wrote after the Revolution, he admits that James II altered the papers in divers passages, and then caused them to be printed."Item number: #9351Price: $950SPRAT, ThomasA true account and declaration of the horrid conspiracy against the late king, His present Majesty, and the government: as it was order'd to be published by His late Majesty...'Copies of the Informations and Original Papers Relating to the Proof of the Horrid conspiracy against the Late King'[London] In the Savoy: printed by Thomas Newcomb, 1685.
