1 SMITH, A. Duncan, Editor TRIAL OF MADELEINE SMITH.
Edinburgh William Hodge. Notable Scottish Trials. 1905 First Edition 1st Reprint (both 1905) Cloth VG No Jacket 
xi+371pp+illus. Green cloth with gilt titles, little rubbed at extremes. Top-edge-gilt. Minor foxing to odd page and fore-edge. The trial of the respectable 21-year-old woman for allegedly poisoning her foreign paramour, Pierre L'Angelier, took Glasgow by storm and shocked England when her frank love letters were revealed. When she tried to end the affair, L'Angelier threatened to send her letters to her father, who had forbidden the liaison. In March 1857 L'Angelier died in agony and an autopsy revealed poison by arsenic. Madeleine was arrested and although she admitted buying the poison for cosmetic purposes, denied administering it to her lover.
