Author: 
'By Joshua Barnes, M.A. One of the Senior Fellows of Emmanuel Colledge in Cambridge' [Joshua Barnes (1654-1712); Judge Jeffreys [George, Lord Jeffreys, Baron of Wem, Lord Chancellor]; Bloody Assizes]
Publication details: 
London, Printed, and are to be sold by Walter Davis in Amen-Corner. 1685. [On title-page: 'IMPRIMATUR, | S. Blithe, Procan. Acad. Cantab. | Octob. 5. 1685.']
£450.00

7pp, folio. On four leaves. In good condition, lightly aged. In worn modern half-binding of brown leather spine and corners and cloth covers, split at hinge. The poem is of 124 lines, arranged in five irregular stanzas. A nauseating exercise in brazen sycophancy, written in the aftermath of the Bloody Assizes. Not mentioned in Barnes's entry in the Oxford DNB, which does state that his 'adulation for the Stuarts [...] probably continued undiminished' with the accession of William and Mary.

[Judge Jeffreys, Monmouth's Rebellion and the Bloody Assizes.] Printed handbill, titled: 'The Charge given by the Ld. Ch. Justice Jefferies, at the City of Bristol, Monday, September 21. 1685. In his Return from his Western Campaigne.'

ESTC R1431. 4pp, folio. Bifolium. Paginated 1-4. Aged and worn, with text clear and entire. Drophead title reads: 'THE | CHARGE | GIVEN BY THE | Ld. Ch. Justice Jefferies, | AT THE | CITY of BRISTOL, | Monday, September 21. 1685. | In his Return from his Western Campaigne.' Jeffreys is a byword for cruelty as a result of his handling Bloody Assizes following Monmouth's Rebellion, and the present text does nothing to dispel that judgement.
