The Complete Newgate Calendar.

London: Navarre Society, 1926.

Frontispiece, many black & white illustrations. 5 volumes. Thick 8vos, black cloth with ornately gilt spines (spines neatly repaired at ends, more so on first volume) pages untrimmed. London: Privately Printed for the Navarre Society, 1926. Very good.

This work is "not just a bare recital of grisly facts but a book fraught with the romance and color of human lives, which if not always of the most exalted, are certainly among the most vivid."
