A Defence of our present Happy Establishment; and the Administration Vindicated;
from the falshood and malice of several late treasonable libels, viz. Cato's letters in the London Journal. And The historical account of the advantages of the Hanover succession, &c.London: Printed for J. Roberts, 1722 Stock Code: 135228
First edition of Tindal's reply to the republican-inclined "Cato's Letters", published pseudonymously by John Trenchard and Thomas Gordon in the London Journal from 1720 to 1723. Though a freethinker and controversialist, Matthew Tindal (1657-1723) was nonetheless a strong support of the Whig establishment and the British constitution as established by the Glorious Revolution and Hanoverian succession. The present works defends both the constitution and the present administration. Uncommon in commerce; ESTC locates 12 copies.
Octavo (188 x 118 mm). Disbound pamphlet, spine strengthened and resewn.
Tiny wormholes, slight stains to pp. 5/6 and to final page. A very good copy.
