Description

Historic Newspapers – London Gazette – James II issue number 2120 of the London Gazette covering the period March 11th-15th 1685(ie 1686), and containing a verbatim report of the Proclamation of James II offering a General Pardon to all his subjects. This was a four page issue of the paper, in good condition throughout. The Pardon, as such, was a double edged sword, which was often the case in those days- while appearing to offer a free and widespread pardon to his subjects, the document made specific exclusions and those included all the rebels involved in Monmouth’s Rebellion, and Titus Oates.
