1912 Trial of Mrs Maybrick
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
In the publisher's original cloth binding.
Illustrated, with a frontispiece and five plates.
This is a full account of the trial of Mrs Maybrick who was convicted of murdering her cotton merchant husband James Maybrick through poison. Preceding the day-by-day account there is a list of dates and the counsel. There were five trial days in total, and each day has a verbatim account of proceedings.
This trial was sensational and gripped the attention of the general public at the time and was reported by press in England and America.
More than a century after his death Maybrick was accused of being Jack the Ripper following the revelation of a diary whereby he confessed. Subsequently this was found to be a hoax. However, researcher Bruce Robinson believes that his brother Michael Maybrick was the true killer.
An uncommon work on what was a captivating trial at the time.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, very smart. A few light marks to the boards and minor shelfwear to the head and tail of spine. Internally, generally firmly bound though strained in places. Pages are generally bright. Scattered spotting to the first and last few pages and to the fore-edge.
