Lot closed - Sold For (Includes Buyers Premium):$180
$300 - $500

An Argument for independence, in opposition to an Union. Addressed to all his Countrymen. By an Irish Catholic

[Bullen, William]


Printed by J. Stockdale



[2], 51 pp. (8vo) 20x12.5 cm (8x5"), modern linen. 

A plea against the projected submission of the Acts of Union to the Parliaments of Great Britain and Ireland, to create the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, for "while it is not yet treason to discuss the subject, an Irishman may indulge the melancholy satisfaction of sympathizing with his countrymen upon the impending calamity." OCLC/WorldCat lists only three copies, one at the British Library and two at the Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, and the latter two are apparently duplicate listings.

Lot Amendments

Some very light foxing; very good in modern binding.
