Hardback. The verdict that establishes neither innocence nor guilt. Four famous trials discussed, which resulted in a finding of Not Proven. This acquits without removing the stigma of suspicion, and is often interpreted to mean that the jury probably thought the accused guilty even though the prosecution have not conclusively proved it. Peculiar only to Scottish law. Cases featured : Christina Gilmour, Madeleine Smith, Alfred Monson and John Merrett (also known later in life as Ronald Chesney and tried again for murder). 255pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly foxed and browned edges o/w Nr. F. in v. sl. sunned Nr. F. dw.
