The first two tracts are: "Equitable Representation necessary to the Establishment of Law, Peace, and Good Government: shewn in someExtracts from Mr Prynne's Brevia Parliamentaria Rediviva.with some occasinal remarks thereup.written in March 1777 .London: First printed in the Year 1780" and "(Second Part.) Annual Parliaments, the ancient and most salutary Right of the Commons of Great Britain. Being an Extract from Sharp's Declarartion of the People's natural Right to a Share in the Legislature.London: Re-printed in the Year 1780". The whole book is consecutively paginated: the general title page is lacking and the pagination for these two tracts is B2,iv, [v-vii], pp8-60. The second part is followed by " A Defence Ancient, Legal, and Constitutional;Right of the People, to elect representatives for every Session of Parliament; viz. ot only 'every Year once.' but also 'More often in Need be;'.in a Letter to a Member of the Surrey Committee. By Granville Sharp. Fifth Edition. London Printed by Galabin and Baker, Number 1, Ingram Court, Fenchurch Street, M.DCC.LXXX." pp61-78. Followed by: "A Circular Letter to the several Petitioning Counties, Cities, and Towns.By Granville Sharp. Fifth Edition." pp78-95. Bound in contemporary ofr very slightly later boards covered in red paper with gilt decoration, the spine in six compartments with a black title label gilt entitled POLITICAL REFORMATI [the additional lettters ON have never been included as the border would not permit them], the binding is perfectly sound and has light wear at the extremities as might be expected for its age, a few small ink blots on boards but generally a good looking copy from an old country house library. It is not clear whether the general title page for the first two tracts has been removed (if so, neatly) or was never included: the book retains two free blank pages at front and rear, the contents are very clean although there are some marginal notes of an informed nature in a contemporary hand in ight lead pencil. This copy is boldly signed in ink on the front pastedown "Frances Sharp". An extremely unusual combination of tracts and an exciting association copy which once belonged to the reformer and anti slavery campaigner's sister FRANCES SHARP (1718-1799).
