HOUSE OF BRUNSWICK.
PARTLY REVISED AND RE-WRITTEN.
(FIRST EDITION, 1871.)
PREFACE TO THE TENTH EDITION.
The present edition of “ The Impeachment of the House of Brunswick” was partly revised by Mr. Bradlaugh two or more years ago, when it was thought that the last edition had gone out of print, thus making it necessary to issue a new one. When, however, he had revised about half the book a large number of the last issue were found, and there was no longer any urgency for the new edition. Consequently the work was put aside for the revision to be continued in time which might be spared from other and more pressing work. But that time never arrived, and as the pages were put aside so I found them a few months ago.
I now issue the book as he left it, with the first fifty-five pages corrected, considerably added to, and generally revised. The later pages are untouched, and remain as they were in the last edition.
In the appearance of the book we have departed from the fashion of all former editions, in order to make it uniform with Mr. Bradlaugh’s “ Collected Speeches ”, “ Labor and Law,” and “Doubts in Dialogue ". We have now also added a valuable index which will be very welcome in these days of haste and hurry, and for which I am indebted to my friend, Mrs. Mary Reed.
My best thanks are due to Mr. John M. Robertson for his kindness in seeing through the press this, as well as the other of my father's works issued since his death.
HYPATIA BRADLAUGH BONNER.
