Wing C518, ESTC R31287; The English Liberties (first published in 1680, in later versions often titled British Liberties) was a cheap polemical book that was influential and much-reprinted, in the American colonies as well as Britain, and made Magna Carta central to the history and the contemporary legitimacy of its subject. Henry Care (1646-1688) was an English political writer and journalist, or "Whig propagandist" whose specialty was anti-Catholicism. [wikipedia]; . This later edition includes information about statutes enacted during the reign of William and Mary and also adds a separate section, number IV for the penal laws against papists (originally part of section III).
