Klappentext

Excerpt from The Chronicles of Crime, or the New Newgate Calendar, Vol. 1: Being a Series of Memoirs and Anecdotes of Notorious Characters Who Have Outraged the Laws of Great Britain From the Earliest Period to 1841

The comparison of the offences, and of the punishments of the last century, with those of more recent date. Will exhibit a marked distinction between the two periods, both as to the atrocity of the one, and the severity of the other. Those dreadful and frequent crimes, which would disgrace the more savage tribes, and which characterised the lives of the early objects of our criminal proceedings. Are now no longer heard of; and those characters of blood. In which the pages of our Statute-book were formerly wrltten, have been wiped away by improved civilisation and the milder feelings of the people. It is but just to say that the provi sions of a wise Parliament have not been unattended with proper results. Humanity has been permitted to temper the stern demands of justice; and however atrocious, it must be admitted, some of the crimes may be which have been recently perpetrated.
