This electronic publication contains the majority of England’s most celebrated trials and comprises official reports and detailed commentaries on some of the most famous (and infamous) events in British history. From Kings and Queens to regicides, heretics and witches to bishops, rebels, pamphleteers, and pirates to servants and slaves, the earliest trial described is that of Thomas Beckett in 1163, and the final trial in the series is dated 1858. This electronic version includes the exhaustive commentaries and footnotes found in the original volumes, together with the texts of the trials. It also contains the trial of William Wallace, which was not included in the printed volumes. Unique to this electronic version, is the inclusion of Corbett’s/Howell’s State Trials (1809 - 1828) and MacDonnell’s New Series (published 1885 - 1898), which together form the most complete collection of these important cases.
