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.

The Minister and the Choir Singer

By Kunstler, William M.

Third printing, with a chipped dustjacket. Kunstler's take on this famous murder trial. There is a nice quote from Rex Stout on the jacket cover: "Not only well worth buying and reading, but worth reading twice; first, at a gallop, for its exciting take of murder and the slings and arrows of the aftermath -- and second, going slow, for its fascinating account, fully documented, of sustained official ineptitude, surely never surpassed anywhere". That now seems a trifle optimistic , but it is a fascinating case; James Thurber also wrote a very good account of the trial for the New Yorker, collected in the Library of America volume of crime writing.
