Hardback. 2nd impression, same yr. as 1st. The author was Chief Superintendent of the Fingerprint Bureau New Scotland Yard when he retired after 40-yrs of service. The history of this valuable branch of forensic science in Britain was inextricably linked with Fred Cherrill's life, for it was not long before the young policeman had gravitated to what was then the relatively unimportant section covering fingerprints. As he increased in professional stature, so did the science to which he was devoted. Cherrill became involved in many famous cases as the years went on, and he is able to show how fingerprints have been used to prove innocence as well as guilt. Cases include Christie, Mable Church, Gordon Cummins, Rose Muriel Atkins, Constance Bird, Jeannette Cotton, Beryl & Geraldine Evans, + many others. With Frontis. photo' of the author. Illus., Index. 248pp. 8vo. h/back. Sl. damage to tail of sp. o/w G+ in notched and torn Fair only pcdw.
