Lot of 5 broadsides from 1798 until 1870 plus an 1808 circular, Speech of the Lords Commissioners to Both Houses of Parliament, addressing Napoleon's treaty with Russia. A small excerpt of the pamphlet reads, "we are commanded by His Majesty to inform you, that no sooner had the Result of the Negotiations at Tilsit confirmed the Influence and Controul [sic] of France over the Powers of the Continent, than His Majesty was apprized of the Intention of the Enemy to combine those Powers in one general Confederacy to be directed either to the entire Subjugation of this Kingdom, or to the improving upon His Majesty an insecure and ignominious Peace." It goes on to explain that while peace negotiations with the Danish failed, but succeeded with the Portuguese.
