|Named Person:||Lionel Nathan de Rothschild, Baron|
|Material Type:||Internet resource|
|Document Type:||Book, Internet Resource|
|Notes:||Dated from internal evidence - Although Baron Rothschild was first elected to parliament in 1847 and several times after this (twice in 1857), he did not take his seat until 26 July 1858 after an Oaths Bill was introduced, this was because although constitutionally a Jew could become a member of parliament, technically he could not take his seat since the oath of allegiance required him to swear on the New Testament - information from 'Oxford Dictionary of National Biography' online.
First line reads: Oh! what a piece of work has been/ the country round about.
In two columns.
