N HISTORICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY ON THE GREAT CHARTER OF KING JOHN: comprising with the original Latin, and an accurate English Translation, Notes and Observations illustrative of the Liberties it conveys, and on the principal events connected with its execution: translations of the various deeds referred to; an accurate account of their originals, both manuscript and in print, and the Lives of the Monarch and chief persons concerned in the rise, progress, and completion of that celebrated Instrument. The whole drawn from the best existing authorities in public and private collections.


The Work will be highly illustrated with Engravings on Wood, by the principal Artists who were engaged in the Embellishment of the late edition of 'PUCKLE'S CLUB,' which gave such universal satisfaction to the very numerous subscribers.

Important as this ancient Historical Document appears, even in a national point of view, no attempt has hitherto been made at that popular illustration of the subject, calculated to gratify, at once, the general Reader, and the tasteful Antiquary; to supply this acknowledged desideratum in English History, is the object of the present undertaking, and no pains nor expense will be spared to render the Work worthy of a place in every Historical Library. It will be printed in one volume, in octavo size, to arrange with the various editions of Hume, Rapin, &c. &c. &c.

The price cannot be precisely fixed, but from the elegant and novel style of decoration proposed, it probably cannot be under (and to Subscribers it shall not exceed) £1:4s. in super extra boards. A limited number of Copies will be printed upon Royal Drawing Paper, for the accommodation of the curious, (price to Subscribers £2:8s.) but in any future edition of the Work, Large Paper Copies will not be published.

Printed for JOHN MAJOR, 18, Skinner Street, London, to whom, (post paid) or through their respective booksellers, gentlemen, desirous of possessing the Work, are requested to forward their names.

Johnson, Printer, Apollo Press, Brook Street, Holborn.
