Alex James Beresford Hope (1820–87) was a conservative M. P. with an unwavering devotion to the Church of England. In this pamphlet, he defends the close relations between church and state in his opposition to the marriage with a deceased wife's sister bill. He would continue to oppose the bill in subsequent sessions of parliament. Removed from a nonce volume. One shallow edge chip to pp. 91/92 and three shallow edge chips (another small piece ) to pp. 93/94. Otherwise, a very good copy. (Inventory #: 21296)
