Withdrawn from the University of Auckland Law School Library

The Notable (British) Trials series of books, consisting of 83-85 volumes published between 1905 and 1959, was intended primarily for law students, but accessible to the layperson.
The NBT texts have been republished in various forms, including a multi-volume "Famous Trials" (abridged) series by Penguin in the 1950s, and more recently in e-book form. This is an original!
A Notable British Trial is neither a "camouflaged thriller" nor a legal text-book. The trial, rather than the crime, is the focus of the text.

The trial of Mr. and Mrs. Seddon for the murder of Miss Barrow, their wealthy lodger, took place at the Old Bailey in 1912, and occupied 10 days. Miss Barrow's death was originally certified as being due to natural causes. No suspicion was aroused until relatives enquired about her property and the money she was known to have had in her possession. The jury convicted Seddon and acquitted his wife.
