——A Collection of Tracts on several subjects connected with the Civil and Religious Principles of Catholics. 1826. This collection arose out of the publication of a charge by bishop Shute of Durham, 1806, reprinted by him under the title of The Grounds on which the Church of England separated from the Church of Rome. L. answered the original publication in Remarks on the Bishop of Durham’s Charge, 1807, which in its turn provoked several replies. To these Lingard printed a series of answers. He replied to the bishop’s second edition in 1809, adding further Remarks on particular points of doctrine. In the Collection are other tracts by L., among which a historical interest belongs to Documents to ascertain in the Sentiments of British Catholics … respecting the Power of the Popes (1812); A Review of certain Anti-Catholic Publications (by bishops Huntingford and Tomline, and Lord Kenyon), 1813, which passed through several editions; and a criticism of two tracts by bishop Burgess.

(2) Writers of Political Pamphlets

In the following short list of selected political pamphlets are not included books or essays belonging to the domains of political science or philosophy, for which see bibliography to Chapter 1, ante. Nor are letters, whether with actual or with pseudonymous signatures, noted, except in the case of pamphlets taking the form of an open letter or series of letters; and no attempt has been made to enumerate political contributions in the shape of letters to newspapers or other periodicals. Among political and social questions which, more especially when they drew near to a settlement, pressed heavily upon the mind of the public, and, accordingly, led to a more or less copious production of pamphlet literature, were catholic emancipation, the currency question, the reform bill, the poor law amendment act and its sequels, the invasion panics of the early fifties and the European war which followed. The national debt, and the general question of the state of the nation, we have had with us throughout the nineteenth century, and, on these subjects, frequent periodical comments in pamphlet-form have, also, been a matter of course. In the earlier part of the century, the conditions of Indian government called forth much comment, generally in pseudonymous pamphlet form.
A collection edited, under the title The Pamphleteer, by Valpy, A. J., and extending over twenty-nine volumes (1813–28), includes, together with political pamphlets of which a few are mentioned below, speeches, letters and other appeals to public opinion, and possesses considerable value for the historical study of the period, unfortunately very limited, which it covers. Among other collections which contain, inter alia, political pamphlets, or the reprints of such, may be noted the several series of Cobden club essays mentioned below. Pamphlets dealing with questions of ecclesiastical or general religious interest have, as a rule, been excluded from the present list, together with pamphlets on education in its various grades. Academical questions have been largely carried on in the curter form of the flysheet, a species of controversial literature subject to conditions of its own.
