Item # 617055
April 17, 1679
THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, April 17, 1679
* Popish Plot
The front page has a report from Madrid with Judaica reference: "...from the Pope, requiring him to send some of the processes made by the Inquisition against the Jews to Rome, that so the Pope might see their manner of proceedings declaring them if in ten days time he did not deliver them to the Nuncio, that he should be ipso facto suspected & all the Inquisitors excommunicated..." (see).
Also of significance is a back page report concerning the 'trial of the five Catholic Lords' involved in the Popish Plot. It mentions that 4 or them (Lord Belasyse was too ill to attend): "...were brought to the Bar, where kneeling & ten standing up they delivered their several answers to the Articles of the charge against them which being read, they withdrew & were conduced back to the Tower..." (see).
Single sheet, 7 by 11 inches, very discrete archival mend to the back page is almost unnoticeable, very nice condition.
