London, 1747. Publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. 20th-century tan buckram, spine gilt, leather label. Minor edge wear, soiling and staining, small gouge to top of front joint, binding broken after p.2 of first work. Library stamp to first titlepage, some short edge tears. Good. An interesting collection of 17th-century English trial accounts. Some of the works touch on or directly involve the Popish Plot, a fictitious anti-Catholic conspiracy that resulted in the executions of over twenty people. Titus Oates was the instigator of the conspiracy and his trial for perjury is present here. The trial of William Scroggs here also related to the Popish Plot - Scroggs was the chief justice of the court during the trials of those accused in the Popish Plot and is largely responsible for their convictions. The trials involving the Popish Plot here come towards the end of the hysteria. Also present here are two works relating to the trial of Elizabeth Cellier. Known as the "Popish Midwife," Cellier also suffered the vehement anti-Catholic sentiment prevelant in England at the time. She was acquitted of attempting the King's kidnapping in the "Meal-Tub Plot;" but her expose of that matter, "Malice Defeated" led to her trial for "Scandalous Libel," for which she was fined, pilloried and her book burnt.
