Stafford's memoires: or, A brief and impartial account of the birth and quality, impisonment, [sic] tryal, principles, declaration, comportment, devotion, last speech, and final end, of William, late Lord Viscount Stafford. Beheaded on Tower-Hill Wednesday the 29. of Decemb. 1680. Whereunto is annexed a short appendix concerning some passages in Stephen Colledges tryal. The whole now again set forth, for a more ample illustration of that so wonderfuly zealous pamphlet, entituled, The papists bloody after-game; writ in answer to the said Memoirs, and published by Langley Curtis, 1682.
No publishers stated, London 1682 - This book is very scarce - we have found no copy on the market and in UK libraries only Durham Routh. It is bound in late 17th/early 18th century leather with blind fillets, no lettering on spine. The book was a pro-Catholic part of the propaganda war following the Popish Plot, of which Titus Oates is the anti-hero. Lord Stafford (later in 1929 beatified as a Catholic Martyr) was a prominent victim, executed in 1680. 215 pages, 16 x 9cm, the pages and binding are in excellent condition, the leather cover, with some old worm holes, has been refurbished, with some addition of leather to the spine and re-attachment of one board with Japanese paper. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
