RARE PRINTED BROADSIDE ANNOUNCING THE ABOLITION OF THE MONARCHY AND THE BEHEADING OF KING CHARLES I
(PARLIAMENT). Broadside—English Civil War. London, March 19, 1648 [i.e., 1649].
Rare and desirable broadside printed shortly after the execution of Charles I abolishing the "Kingly Office" in England, since "to have the power thereof in any single person, is unnecessary, burthensom and dangerous to the liberty, safety and publique interest of the people," thereby doing away with the institution of monarchy and preventing any claimants to the throne. $17,500.
