From high treason and mutiny to forgery and sheep-stealing, the crimes for which the condemned paid the ultimate penalty paint a telling picture of the lives and times of everyone involved in these personal tragedies - all of which culminated in the high drama of sudden death at the end of the rope. An invaluable reference book. Illus., British Hanging Chronology, Notable English Hangmen, Select Bibliog. and Index of the Hanged. 459pp. Browned pp. o/w Vg+
