The Birmingham Political Union and the House of Lords... More "Justices' Justice"... Stopping Supplies... Lord Glenelg and the New Australian Colony..
London: C. & W. Reynell, 1835. Tall octavo, 16 pp., the last 2 leaves opened roughly with tear (no loss of text); a very good copy in modern tan half calf. A very uncommon pamphlet detailing a surprisingly advanced proposal to allow settlers in South Australia to elect their own representatives, rather than submit to a Governor.Ferguson commented: 'One of the series of pamphlets edited by Roebuck, containing a number of articles including one by H.S. Chapman on the obstruction of Lord Glenelg of the South Australian Company, and suggesting that his lordship should be set at defiance, and that the Colonists should establish their Colony on a self-governing basis with an elective Governor.'The Birmingham Political Union was an early proponent of extending suffrage to the working class, and is considered one of the major forerunners of Chartism.The work was edited by the fiery British MP, John Arthur Roebuck.
