Trial of Steinie Morrison by Stinie Morrison( )

5 editions published between 1922 and 1995 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Steinie Morrison was convicted of murdering Leon Beron, a Russian Jew, who was found dead on Clapham Common on New Year's Day, 1911. His face had been mutilated by a knife and two large S's -- "the mark of vengeance" -- had been cut on the cheeks. The sentence of death was commuted to one of penal servitude, and Morrison died from semi-starvation in Parkhurst Prison Infirmary some years later. The trial gives a picture of life in London unaffected by ordinary conditions, where men who do no work stay all day in restaurants; where a man with fifteen shillings a week is described as a retired gentleman living on his means, and where a man is one day a waiter and the next day a customer in the same eating-house."

Jack Sheppard by Jack Sheppard( Book )

8 editions published between 1933 and 1995 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jack Sheppard accomplished three remarkable escapes from the prisons of Clerkenwell and Newgate. In the most celebrated of these escapes he effected his release unaided and alone, in darkness, and with merely a nail and an iron bar (wrenched from a chimney) for "tools." His pluck, gaiety, strength, and endurance, and the bravery with which he met his cruel death at the gallows at the age of twenty-two, have tinted his otherwise sordid story with pitiful romance. This volume provides a full account of Jack Sheppard's life and his Trial in 1724, and includes a rare contemporary memoir of Jonathan Wild who was the associate of Jack Sheppard and the main factor in the early termination of his life."
Oscar Wilde, three times tried by Oscar Wilde( )

16 editions published between 1911 and 1929 in English and French and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Royal mail case : Rex v. Lord Kylsant, and another by Owen Cosby Philipps( Book )

15 editions published between 1933 and 2003 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The trial of Lord Kylsant in 1931 marked a turning-point in the history of company finance. The Kylsant case cannot be understood unless the financial background of 1928-31 is properly envisaged. After the boom of the former year, crashes and crises were many, ranging from the conviction of Brandreth of the "Ner-Sag" companies to the frauds of Clarence Hatry; but the Royal Mail Case assumes a greater importance to investors from the fact that those charged were felt to be not rogues but honest men."
