Description

"If there be a haunted spot in London it must surely be a few square yards that lie a little west of the Marble Arch, for in the long course of some six centuries over fifty thousand felons, traitors and martyrs took there a last farewell of a world they were too bad or too good to live in. From remote antiquity, when the seditious were taken _ad furcas Tyburnam_, until that November day in 1783 when John Austin closed the long list, the gallows were kept ever busy, and during the first half of the eighteenth century, with which this book deals, every Newgate sessions sent thither its thieves, highwaymen and coiners by the score." We have a strange fascination with crime and criminals; and with their punishment... just or otherwise. Here, we have a collection of papers regarding the most infamous criminals of the early eighteenth century selected from the original and authentic memoirs originally published in 1735. - Summary by Lynne Thompson
