An Impartial Account of the Nature and Tendencies of the Late Addresses, in a Letter to a Gentleman in the Country.

London: Printed for R. Baldwyn, 1681. First edition. 4to, unbound, 40 pages. Stitching perished, with the gatherings loose; some soiling and wear; a good copy. Item #7967

A pamphlet that deplores, among other things, the Popish drift of a number of recent publications. If this pamphlet was indeed written by Shaftesbury, political foe to Halifax and champion of the Exclusion Bill, it was no doubt published shortly before his arrest in July of 1681. He here attacks Charles on a number of points. With printed shoulder annotations of the pamphlets attacked. Wing I-73; not noted in Halkett & Laing. Attribution taken from the NUC.
