Description

Details

The first edition of this uncommon work. These letters are associated with the political process during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century regarding the 'Catholic emancipation' or 'relief'. Following the Act of Union between Great Britain and Ireland there was a call to remove many of the restrictions on Roman Catholics introduced by the Act of Uniformity, Test Acts and penal laws. During the Act of Union, William Pitt the Younger, the Prime Minister at the time, promised emancipation to accompany the act. However, no further steps were taken. This was due to King George III believing that any Catholic emancipation would violate his Coronation Oath. To this work there are correspondences between Pitt and George III regarding this matter. Pitt resigned from his position as Prime Minister when the King's opposition became known. To the main body of this work, George writes to Kenyon regarding the standing of the Coronation Oath. He notes to the first letter that 'The following Queries on the present attempt to abolish all distinctions in Religion in Ireland with the intention of favouring the Roman Catholics in that Kingdom...' The King is enquiring to Kenyon as to whether emancipation would affect his Coronation Oath. With an introduction by Henry Phillpotts, a well known opponent of Catholic emancipation. One of his well known works is 'A Letter to an English Layman on the Coronation Oath, which was issued after this work. This copy is from the Bishop Phillpotts Library in Truro, with a bookplate for the library to the front pastedown. The Philpotts library is still an important centre for theological studies. It was first opened in 1871 by Henry Phillpotts. Another prior owner's bookplate to front pastedown, 'Henricus Exoniensis'. There are six letters between Kenyon and George III to this volume and five letters between Pitt and the King. With a facsimile letter by George III as the frontispiece. The first edition of this interesting, contemporaneous account of British history.
