PHILIPS, George. The Interest of England in the Preservation of Ireland.


1 in stock

Humbly Presented to the Parliament of England. London: Printed for Rich Chiswell at the Rose and Crown in St. Pauls Church-Yard, 1689. Quarto. pp. [viii], 28. Later half morocco on marbled boards, title in gilt along worn spine. From the library of William Ruddell Clarke with his armorial bookplate on front pastedown. Some wear to spine. A very good copy.

Sweeney 3457. Wing P 2027. Philips adopts a singularly individual line being at one and the same time anti-Jacobite and anti-English: He was appalled by the conduct of the government of Ireland under James II, but now that William and Mary are on the throne is angered by what he terms “the supine negligence and fatal indifferency demonstrated by England in their cold concernment and slow motions towards the recovery of Ireland.”
