Hardback. Featuring the kidnapping of Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr., aged 20 months, son of aviator Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. The toddler was abducted from the family house in East Amwell, New Jersey near the town of Hopewell, New Jersey, on the evening of March 1, 1932. Over two months later, on May 12, 1932, his body was discovered a short distance from the Lindbergh home. A medical examination determined that the cause of death was a massive skull fracture. After an investigation that lasted more than 2yrs., Bruno Richard Hauptmann was arrested and charged with the crime. In a trial that was held from January 2 to February 13, 1935, Hauptmann was found guilty of murder in the first degree and sentenced to death. He was executed by electric chair at the New Jersey State prison on April 3, 1936. Hauptmann proclaimed his innocence to the end. 294pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly browned edges and eps, lightly marked covers, o/w Vg.
