1926. This book contains some trials in which the author was himself engaged for which it cannot be claimed that they fall into the category of "famous". The treatment of the cases is untechnical throughout, so that the narratives may easily be comprehended by laymen. They belong to very different periods of English history, some of which are now remote and curious. One of the greatest lawyers of all time gives the reader the inside history of many famous trials. These stories are among the most dramatic and fascinating in the world, and includes such trials as: trial of Mary Queen of Scots, trial of Deacon Brodie, man who stole the king's crown, frauds of the Bank of Liverpool, and many others.
