1 IRVING, H.B. Editor TRIAL OF MRS MAYBRICK.
Edinburgh William Hodge, Notable English Trials. 1912 1st hardcover GOOD 
xlvi+364pp. A GOOD copy in red cloth with gilt titles, spine slightly faded and a little worn at edges and corners. Endpapers tanned a little foxing scattered internally. Top-edge-gilt. Sig. to endpaper. Accused of poisoning her husband, James, with arsenic, Florence Maybrick claimed that her fly-papr soaked solution was intended for cosmetic purposes. James Maybrick was in fact a hypochondriac and regular arsenic user. It was felt that because of her own affair with a Mr Alfred Brierley, she was condemned as an unfaithful wife rather than a murderess, yet James had maintained a regular mistress for years. One of the classic British cases.

2 IRVING, H.B. Editor TRIAL OF THE WAINWRIGHTS.
Edinburgh William Hodge, Notable English Trials. 1920 1ST hardcover GOOD No dj 
xiv+235pp+illus. Red cloth with dulled gilt titles. Small mark to spine where label probably removed. Little wear to extremes and slightly marked on covers. Endpapers tanned but o/w clean internally. Blind stamp of University Library to title page. Beneath the facade of respectability London brush-maker Henry Wainwright concealed a story of intrigue. In 1871 he met Harriet Lane and 'married' her despite already having a wife and family. He led a double life for three years during which Harriet gave birth to two children. When his finances failed, he withdrew support but his brother promised to look after her. She left her lodgings and was never seen again. Henry was later apprehended as he transferred two parcels of human remains from his brother's cab and a grave was found at his Whitechapel Road warehouse.
