"Madeleine Smith, the daughter of a well-known and respected citizen of Glasgow, was tried at Edinburgh in June, 1857, for the murder of Pierre Emile L'Angelier. When still young Madeleine made the acquaintance of L'Angelier, who was a clerk in a Glasgow warehouse and much below her in social station. From the first their association was of a clandestine nature; meetings and interviews became frequent, and when these were found impracticable, affectionately worded missives were exchanged. On becoming engaged to a gentleman in her own station of life, Madeleine endeavoured to get back from L'Angelier the compromising letters she had written him, but without success. At her trial, which followed the sudden death of L'Angelier, the case for the Crown was that his death was due to arsenical poisoning, and that on several occasions the accused had supplied L'Angelier with cocoa or coffee poisoned with arsenic. In this edition are printed for the first time the complete letters of Madeleine Smith."

"Margarot was one of the 'Scottish Martyrs' whose calls for parliamentary reform led to the sedition trials which took place in 1793-94. Together with Joseph Gerrard, Margarot was a delegate to the 1793 'British Convention of the Societies of the Friends of the People' held at Edinburgh. Found guilty of sedition, he was sentenced to fourteen years transportation to Botany Bay, where he mingled with radical convicts and United Irishmen and at the same time acted as an informant to Governor King. He was subsequently sent in turn to Norfolk Island, Van Dieman's Land, and Newcastle, arriving back in England in 1810."--D & E Lake bookseller's description

Trial of Oscar Slater by Oscar Slater( Book )

17 editions published between 1910 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oscar Slater was tried at Edinburgh in 1909 for the murder of Miss Marion Gilchrist, an old lady, in her flat in Glasgow. The case for the Crown was based on evidence of identity alone, and it had many weak links. In what other murder case, for instance, has the supposed right man been arrested on what was an admittedly wrong clue? Nevertheless, Slater was convicted, the jury voting as follows : for Guilty, nine; for Not Proven, five; and for Not Guilty, one. Slater was sentenced to death, but he was afterwards reprieved and sent to Peterhead. An official enquiry was held into the case in 1914, but it increased rather than diminished the mystery. In 1927 Slater was liberated from Peterhead having served nineteen years in prison; and shortly afterwards this long legal tragedy was brought to a close when the case was taken to the Scottish Court of Criminal Appeal and the conviction quashed."

Four months afterwards he died suddenly, and suspicions that his wife had poisoned him, with the connivance of his brother, Lieutenant Patrick Ogilvie, culminated in their arrest on a double charge of incest and murder.
