A splendidly illustrated account of criminals and crime over the centuries - and of those who spent their lives pursuing them: the police, thief-takers, magistrates and judges. From the triple tree of Tyburn to the prisons, stocks and hulks of London, the law is revealed in action to combat and to contain crime. There are also the criminal courts, from the Royal Courts to the Police Courts, and the evolution of the criminal justice system. Profusely Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 207pp. 4to. h/back. As New in dw. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
