Taken from the Relation of Mr. JAMES MACPHERSON, who was an Eye-Witness of the Whole, and who took the first Opportunity of leaving the Rebels, into whose Service he was forced, and in which he had a Captain's Commission." Fielding, the famous novelist and dramatist and author of "Tom Jones" was strongly anti-Jacobite. He published this, one of his scarcest works, anonymously. James MacPherson, the Jacobite Captain, whose account of the Rebellion is supposed to form the basis of the Work was not, in fact, a real person but was a figment of Fielding's imagination. Photographs available on request.
