What Our Customers Say...

Description

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. 

A smart copy of this work, on what was a captivating trial at the time.
