An account of the pragmatic sanction, the rise of the several claims made on the demise of this emperor, and the steps that have hitherto been taken to assert them. Also the geography and history of all the dominions belonging to the imperial branch of the Austrian family; with a view of the strength, revenues, &c. of the Queen of Hungary, compared with those of other powers. And the history of the succession to the estates of the Duke of cleves, in 1609, and the pretensions now subsisting, upon the extinction of the house of Neuburg in the late elector palatine.
