Jonathan Swift’s Allies: The Wood’s Halfpence Controversy in Ireland, 1724-1725

Author: 
Baltes, Sabine
Credentials: 
Ph.D University of Muenster, Germany

This scholarly study contains critical new research as well as over 100 reprints of documents, broadsides, ballads that comprise the heart of the pamphlet controversy aroused by Wood’s halfpenny scheme; the scheme which prompted Swift’s Drapier's Letters. Many of these documents are of extreme rarity and are unrecorded by even the finest bibliographical researchers such as Wagner, Davis etc. This is a major contribution to the study of Swift and Irish politics and life in the early 18th century.

Dr Sabine Baltes has studied in Coleraine and Muenster (with Hermann J. Real). This is her first publication.
