The true history of the most illustrious and most glorious Mary Stuart Queen of France and Scotland; [Paris?], [ca. 1675].

Manuscript on paper, in an Italic hand, apparently written in Paris ("here in Paris," p. 77) by an admirer of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, as Roman Catholic martyr. The writer urges the present king of England, Charles II, and his Roman Catholic queen to restore the Catholic religion and make England a great Catholic power (p. 177-178). He cites various authorities, including the "Protestant historiographer" Camden.
