Printed in the Yeare 1648. (By Thomas Scot/Scott) This is an very scarce original English Civil War pamphlet by Thomas Scot, a politician who sat in the House of Commons at various times between 1645 and 1660, and was eventually executed as one of those responsible for the execution of King Charles I. This particular copy has come from the library of the family of the great Civil War army general Sir Thomas Fairfax. Bound with a vellum spine and paper covered boards, with titles to the spine. It measures approx 20cm x 15cm x 0.4cm. The binding is a fraction grubby. Internally, there is the armorial bookplate of stating 'Ex Libris Fairfax of Cameron' pasted to the inside front board. The title page is naturally a little grubby, with a few marks or smudges and a couple of nicks creases to edges. There is a faint name to the top margin, and a couple of hand written intitials to either side of titles. The few leaves have been interwoven with newer leaves
