Hardback. 1st US Edn. (copyright 1904). The American wife of James Maybrick, (alleged author of the 'Maybrick Diary'), Florence was accused of his murder in 1889 and convicted at the end of a sensational trial, presided over by Sir James Fitzjames Stephen (father of J.K. Stephen), who was on the verge of losing his mind and failed to grasp the more important features of the case. Mrs. Maybrick's admitted adultery was allowed to create enormous prejudice against her. She was sentenced to death, but was eventually reprieved after much public outcry. She served 15-yrs. in prison and upon her release spent the rest of her years in America, where she died in obscurity in 1941. Part One: Mrs. Maybrick's Own Story; Part Two: Analysis of the Maybrick Case. With Frontis. + 14 other illus. 394pp. 8vo. h/back. With v. small rubber bookshop stamp to bpd, white lettering to sp. faded but still legible, with a little wear to head/tail. Contents clean and bright. A Vg+ 1st edn. of a scarce title.
