American State Trials Volumes 1 - 5

By Lawson, John D.

The first five volumes of this "Collection of the Important and Interesting Criminal Trials which have taken place in the United States, from the beginning of our Government to the Present Day". These volumes were published between 1914 and 1916. Very clean and solid condition. These are heavy volumes; the set will ship for standard pricing within the United States, but additional shipping - probably significant - is likely to be required for international shipping.
