JONES, Sir William (1631--1682)
A just and modest vindication of the proceedings of the two last Parliaments.
[London]:, [1681].
48 p. ; 19.5 cm. (4º)

Drop-head title. Imprint taken from Wing. An anonymous pamphlet asserting parliamentary power, attributed to Sir William Jones and Algernon Sidney (see ODNB); sometimes also attributed to the triumvirate of Jones, Sidney, and Lord John Somers, or to Robert Ferguson ('the plotter') (see Halkett & Laing). In this setting, there is a broken double rule above the drop-head title and the 'A' of signature A2 is under the 'n' of 'and'. Other settings have either a solid double rule over the drop-head title and the 'A' under the space between 'Feel' and 'and', or a broken double rule and the 'A' under the 'Fe' of 'Fear'. ESTC r14950; Wing F741.
