A sammelband of 5 pamphlets.
An interesting collection including four works relating to the Popish Plot. Sir George Wakeman, the queen’s Catholic physician, was accused by Titus Oates of accepting money to poison Charles II and was indicted for high treason and tried before Lord Chief Justice Scroggs. His acquittal – he was the first tried ‘plotter’ to be found not guilty – dealt a direct blow to the Plot and the credibility of its sponsors. The bookseller and minister Francis Smith (d. 1691) was imprisoned and fined for his stinging exposé of Wakeman’s trial. Simpson Tonge, son of Israel (1621-1680), claimed that his father and Titus Oates had concocted the Plot between them, but his own reputation for untruthfulness meant that his assertions were discounted.
