1 A WRITER TO THE SIGNET REMARKABLE CONVICTIONS
Edinburgh William P. Nimmo 1865 First Edition Hardcover VG No dj 
viii+269pp. VG in sl. marked green cloth with red and gilt title label, spine lightly faded. Little foxing to endpapers o/w pages clean. The author states in the Preface that the majority of cases included in this volume actually occurred, although names have been changed and a few cases are composites of incidents from several known cases. His objective was to illustrate the effect of circumstantial evidence and to show how facts, of an apparently trivial and unexpected nature, turn up to bring home guilt to an accused party even in the face of an able and ingenious defence. Chapters include Murder and Concealment of the Body; Detection of Murder by Native Australians; Mistaken Identity; The Stolen Heiress; The Canine Thief; The Wholesale Forger; The Fatal Dream etc. Several cases are from the Scottish courts. 
Price: 45.00 GBP
