TRUTH BROUGHT TO LIGHT: or The gross forgeries of Dr. Hollingworth, in his pamphlet intituled, The character of King Charles the First, from the declaration of Mr. Alexander Henderson, &c. detected
London, printed in the year 1693.. Being a vindication of Mr. Henderson and Dr. Walker, from the Aldgate chaplain’s vile scandals. To which is annex’d, a manifest proof that Dr. Gauden (not King Charles I.) was the author of Icon basilice (Eikon Basilike), by a late happy discovery of his original papers upon that occasion. In a letter from Lieut. General Ludlow to Dr. Hollingworth. FIRST EDITION 1693, no printer or publisher named. Small slim 4to, approximately 190 x 135 mm, 7½ x 5¼ inches, 40 pages, bound in full vellum over boards, single rule gilt border to covers, gilt rules to spine, gilt lettered morocco label. Covers slightly bowed and slightly spotted, armorial bookplate on front pastedown of Bulkeley Bandinel, celebrated librarian of the Bodleian (1781-1861), on the front endpaper is the signature of Henry H. Gibbs, later Lord Aldenham (d. 1907) and on the rear pastedown is Lord Aldenham's armorial bookplate, light brown damp staining throughout, to margins and in places to text, all easily legible. Binding tight and firm. A good working copy of a rare book. Ludlow's name printed on page 34 with the date: October 1. 1692. This is the work of a republican pamphleteer who wrote under the name of General Ludlow, or Edmund Ludlow, Lieut.-general. It concerns the controversy over the authorship of ’Eikon basilike’, which Richard Hollingworth believed was the work of Charles I, whilst the author of this tract, amongst others, believed it to be the work of John Gauden. Madan, in his ’New bibliography of the Eikon basilike’, states that it was in fact written by John Gauden, although it probably includes some authentic writings of the King (No. 173, page 143 in the Appendix on The Authorship Controversy). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
