HULL. James Acland's Comparative Poll Book, being an alphabetical list of the Electors for the Borough of Kingston-upon-Hull and the Votes recorded at the Three Elections of December, 1832, January 1835 and June 1835.

This publication is a breakdown of the polls for these three elections, followed by James Acland's commentary, listing the electors as 'timid traitors'� 'fools' 'worse than fools' 'neutrals who have become friends'� 'traitors'� and 'arrant traitors'� depending on how they voted in these three elections.

James Acland was an indefatigable campaigner against corruption in the Borough and was imprisoned several times during the 1830s.
