London: 1798 - slight browning along a former central vertical fold, broadside (450 x 340 mm), good An unrecorded broadside announcing two works which do not appear to have been in fact published, or, if so, have not survived. Edward Kemble was a partner in the tea broking firm of Venn and Kemble, and a shareholder in the Bank of England. Among Pitt’s schemes to raise money for the war with France was the ‘Voluntary Contribution’. Shareholders of the Bank of England met on 23rd June 1798 and decided on a donation of £200,000, Kemble being one of the most enthusiastic supporters of the move. His patriotism, of course, was less love of country than the desire to protect trade.
