Description

Chap Book The Noise of War, or Patrick O’Neil Press’d to which are added The Virgin’s Frightened and Duncan’s Victory over the Dutch Fleet. Eight pp, approx 16x10cm, crudely cut, so that the remnants of the accompanying printed copy are still visible to top of pages, printed on poor paper and consequently somewhat browned, woodblock illustration of a ship to cover, modern paper wrappers, but otherwise clearly legible throughout and appears complete. Rare. This does not appear to be listed in COPAC. Comprising a series of popular ballads. Admiral Duncan defeated the Dutch fleet in 1797, suggesting a contemporaneous date for this publication
