The present Volume embraces the period from the Revolution, in 1688, to the Accession of Queen Anne, in the year 1702. For this period, the materials, as well for the Proceedings as the Debates, have been, for the most part, collected from the following Works: 1. The Journals of the House of Lords; 2. The Journals of the House of Commons; 3. The Debates of the House of Commons, from 1688 to 1694, collected by the Honourable Anchitell Grey, who was forty years member for the town of Derby; 4. The Debate between the Lords and the Commons, at a Free Conference, held in the Painted Chamber, in the Session of the Convention in 1688, relating to the words, “ Abdicated," and " the Vacancy of the Throne,” used in the Vote of the Commons; 5. A Collection of the Debates and Proceedings in Parliament in 1694 and 1695, upon the Inquiry into the (then) late Briberies and corrupt Practices, printed in the year 1695; 6. Proceedings in the House of Commons against Sir John Fenwick, printed in the year 1698 ; 7. Timberland's History and Proceedings of the House of Lords; and, 8. Chandler's History and Proceedings of the House of Commons,

Here again, as in the former Volumes, recourse has been had to the best historians and contemporary writers ; and, amongst others, to Burnet, Echard, Kennet, Oldmixon, Ralph, Tindal, Boyer, and Somerville. The Hardwicke Papers have also been consulted; together with the State Tracts, and the Harleian Collection.

There is subjoined, by way of Appendix, a Collection of very scarce and valuable Parliamentary Tracts, taken from those of Lord Sommers, the Harleian Miscellany, and the Collection of State Tracts published during the reign of William the Third.

April 15, 1809.
