Notable Proclamation in the Popish Plot...
Item # 617048
November 4, 1678
THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, Nov. 4, 1678
* Popish Plot proclamation
* Titus Oates anti Catholic conspiracy
More than half of the front page is taken up with a Proclamation by King Charles II concerning the Popish Plot, requiring all persons "involved" in the contrived conspiracy to kill the King (see hyperlink) to leave and be no less than 10 miles from London. A notable issue in this curious event in British history.
Single sheet, bit of foxing, very nice condition.
