S.l.: s.n., 1849. Pamphlet. Very Good -. 61 p.; 22 cm. Disbound from a volume of unrelated 19th-century pamphlets. "23" in ink at upper right-hand corner of title page. In lower half of title page: "by Charles Ingersoll." No publication information. Charles Ingersoll (1805-1882) was the son of Charles Jared Ingersoll (1782-1862), both lawyers in Philadelphia. Charles Ingersoll was the author of several other publications on legal matters. Although opposed by the author of this publication, whether Charles Ingersoll or another, the joint resolution led to an amendment of the Pennsylvania constitution in 1850 introducing the elective judiciary to the state. In the upper right-hand corner of the title page is the partially cropped signature of Craig Biddle (1823-1910), who was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1850 and later a judge. Marginal notations in ink by Biddle, and others in pencil, possibly by another hand. Unfortunately, both the fore-edges and the upper edges were… Read More

Description:
London: Benjamin Tooke, 1684 30 pages (complete although there are no page numbers 9-12 presumably due to printer's error).Sir Samuel Barnardiston ( name having seemingly been mis-spelt by printer) was a whig politician , and director of the East India Company, who was involved in a number of legal cases.This trial was for an alleged libel contained in a private letter that Barnardiston wrote to an acquaintance in which he commented on the conviction of Algernon Sidney for High Treason. Although on conviction Barnardiston was fined £10,000 (and imprisoned until he had paid £6000) the judgement was reversed in 1689 by the House of Lords. There is a small tear on the title page with slight impact on lettering, two corners ( c4cm by c4cm) on the final sheet have been lost but with no impact on lettering. Recently rebound in quarter-leather.
