Softcover. On the night of March 1st, 1932, in Hopewell, New Jersey, the infant son of Colonel Charles Lindbergh, Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr., was placed in his crib for the night by his nurse, Betty Gow. Later that same evening the maid went to the room where the baby slept. The blankets were thrown over the side. And the crib was empty. Despite a $50,000 ransom being paid, the body of the Lindbergh baby was eventually found in woods less than 5 miles from the Lindbergh home. More than 2yrs later, Bruno Richard Hauptmann was arrested and tried for the crime. This is a scarce 31pp. pamphlet recording the Bruno Hauptmann trial for the kidnap and murder of the Lindbergh baby, (and published shortly afterwards) which was broadcast live on the radio, as events unfolded, twice a day from Flemington Court House by the author. One of the earliest radio news broadcasts. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. 31pp. Illus. paper wrappers with Portrait on front cover. Fragile. G++. Rare.
