A Complete History of the Lives and Robberies of the Most Notorious Highwaymen, Footpads, Shoplifts and Cheats of Both Sexes
607pp., illustrations, black cloth boards, dustwrapper. Internally very good with just a little wear. Pages 58-59 have a strip of browning and the right edge of the List of Illustrations is tatty. There are several Devon Constabulary (!) stamps on the first leaves (but not throughout the rest of the book). Front hinge cracked. Cover good with a little wear. The dustwrapper has a bit of edge wear with a few small nicks / small touches of loss. Brief biographies of notorious thieves, highwaymen, robbers and the like.
The Devon Constabulary connection is intriguing!
