A Letter to the Independent Freemen of the City of Rochester,
on the petition against Lord Binning's return being declared frivolous and vexatious; and on the right of the eldest son of a Scotch Peer to represent an English county, city, or borough, without possessing a landed qualification in England.London: 1819 Stock Code: 140853
Second edition (following the first of the same year). "Torrens was politically unorthodox too, as he courted men of all parties to have his economic views pass into public policy. He endorsed Francis Burdett's reform proposals in 1809 and, after failing to win Rochester in June 1818, bore them out in his justificatory Letter to the Freemen" (ODNB).
Octavo (222 x 131 mm). Recent marbled boards, paper label.
Binding fine; contents partly unopened, slight smudge to p. 6. An excellent copy.
