Papers, pamphlets, and prints on British politics and trade

On the spine is stamped ‘Pasguinades Anglaises de 1743 MSS.’ (The spelling ‘Pasguinades’ is probably due to a misreading of the title-page.) The writing on the interspersed leaves is all in the same hand.

The contents may be divided into the following sections (the section headings in inverted commas derive from the table of contents):

Satirical prints (ff. 5–15)
‘Papiers satyriques’ (ff. 16–34)
‘Brochures sur le commerce’ (ff. 35–99)
‘Brochures politiques’ (ff. 110–283)

Printed pamphlet, entitled The Prince of Wales his Dream, presaging the Death of Queen Carolina his Mother: in Latin, French, and English verses, London

The Latin verses (22 lines) begin, ‘Anglia luctiferum tristi cur fronte Colorem’. The French translation (44 lines) begins, ‘Quel changement subit dans l’Isle d’Albion!’ The English translation (34 lines) begins, ‘Why wears Britannia this sad Face of Woe’. An additional line has been added by hand to the Latin and French versions.
