'Truth Displayd or the Tables turned by a Welwisher to the Mathematicks and a Lover of old England Anno Libertatis Angliae 0000', c. 1720, 10 folios. Attached at the beginning is a memorandum on the manuscript by T.G. Crippen, which includes the following: 'This MS. is a venomous attack on the contemporary Chancellor of the Exechequer, Aislabie soon after the South Sea Bubble. It charges him with enriching himself at the public expense. Whether or not it is a transcript from a printed tract I do not know'. At the front there is also a letter from Charles Higham & Son, booksellers, to Francis Jenkinson, 6 December 1910.
