Softcover. Publication date is a bit of a guess, as the book is undated, but have assumed at least a year would have passed before the 2nd edn. came out. With a Foreword by Sir Frederick Wollaston Mann. A book containing graphic descriptions of some of the most colourful trials and episodes in the history of the Australian Courts. Contains the story of the Darling Irons, and the story of John Pascoe Fawkner's libel suit which throws an interesting light on the legal and social atmosphere of the very early days of Sydney and Melbourne. The "black-birding" villainies of Mount and Morris and the exploits of the Kelly gang and the dire retribution which followed, are included. Also features the murder for which George Dean was tried in Sydney in 1895. 231pp. softcover. With sunned wraparound covers, showing signs of shelfwear. G++
