Blandford. Shipp, Printer, [1831].
Dimensions 220 x 340 mm. Single leaf broadside. Central vertical and horizontal folds, a trifle creased.
An apparently unrecorded, provincially-published broadside address by Henry Bankes (1757-1834), local landowner and long-time Tory MP, first for Corfe Castle (1780-1826) and later for Dorset, expressing gratitude for the continued support of local freeholders in his nomination, and calling for 'very early attendance of my Friends at the Poll, on Tuesday next'. As a Trustee of the British Museum, Bankes was known during his time in the Commons as their spokesman.
