1 BERRY, James MY EXPERIENCES AS AN EXECUTIONER
London David & Charles Reprints 1972 0715354302 / 9780715354308 Reprint Hardcover Nr Fine Nr Fine 
144pp. Illus. in text. Bookplate inside cover. Light foxing to endpapers and foxing to fore-edge, but still pages very clean internally. A facsimile reprint of the scarce original 1892 edition. Berry, who plied the gallows trade from 1884 to 1892, was the first - and the last - British hangman to write freely about the techniques of execution. He describes not only his personal attitude towards the ultimate punishment but also that of many of the condemned prisoners whose fall he engineered. A fascinating social document. Includes new Introduction by Jonathan Goodman and an Appendix outlining the history of capital punishment. 
Price: 40.00 GBP
