A Collection of Original Pieces in Prose and Verse Relating Principally to the Jacobite Cause,

Outsize scrap book containing English manuscript and printed poems, letters, ballads, songs, press cuttings, posters and speeches, 1648-1763. As the title suggests, the majority of the material is concerned with royalist themes under the Stuart monarchs, support for the Jacobite cause and anti-Hanoverian propaganda. The earlier works include a copy of a poem by Charles I during his captivity at Carisbrooke Castle, 1648, and items relating to the Commonwealth regime. The later 17th century material concentrates particularly on William III 's foreign wars and his unpopular policies. Individual items of interest include a poem by by Hugh Quellyn praising Sir Robert Owen 's royalist loyalties [pre-1698]; a translation of Merlin 's prophecy; a poster for the [Denbighshire] elections entitled The Protestant Ballad or Advice to Freeholders [c. 1730]; programmes for a puppet show, 1734, and for songs performed at Hardwick, 1763; and well-known accounts of the executions of Lords Kilmarnock and Balmerino, 1746.

Charles I, King of England, 1600-1649.
