Trial of George Henry Lamson
edited by Hargrave L Adam

Hardback, no DJ; 192pp + B/W plates

Withdrawn from the University of Auckland Law School Library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 - referred to on half-title page of this book as Notable British Trials (English Series) and on the spine as Notable English Trials.
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.

A forensic medicine classic. Lamson, a medical practitioner from Bournemouth, was tried and sentenced to death in 1881 for poisoning his brother-in-law, Percy Malcolm John, with aconite.
