Descripción:

[28]p. Probably lacking the last leaf. Title leaf detached. Last leaf detached, torn with some loss. Page edges torn and nicked. Old vertical fold. Some grubbiness to margins. A very scarce survival. ESTC lists six similar titles with London and provincial imprints of differing extent. Detailed proposals for civil defence in the case of an invasion by Bonaparte. Invasion fears were very real in 1798. The proposals include plans for driving cattle and other livestock away from invaded areas; the establishment of 'Corps of Guides', to set up lines of communication; 'Pioneers' who would work behind the enemy's lines to obstruct his progress. Includes templates of forms for recording rolls of 'Voluntary Association of Pioneers', etc. and a template of 'Form of a paper to be subscribed by the nobility, gentry, and yeomanry, referred to in the 1st Article of the plan for procuring waggons, &c', etc. It is not clear under what 'Authority' the 'Proposals' were published, whether by government or private initiative, but the wording and formal layout suggest some official direction.
