About This Item

1833. One of Several Different Accounts of a "Barbarous and Awful Murder" [Broadside]. [Execution]. Wood, John Henry [d.1833]. Barbarous and Awful Murder, Committed Upon the Body of Mrs. Elizabeth Wood, Near the City of Chester, By Her Own Son, John Wood Who Cut Her Throat from Ear to Ear; How the Murder was Found Out, For Which he Was Tried, Executed, on Friday Last, And Hung in Chains Near the Spot. [Carlisle?]: Keys, Printer, [1833]. 14" x 6-1/2" broadside mounted on 15-1/4" x 7-1/2" sheet, summary of case and 26-verse text in two columns below headline, columns and headline separated by rules. Light browning and soiling, light edgewear to broadside, a minor tear and a small inkspot near its lower-right corner. $950. * There are several contemporary broadside accounts of this case with several inconsistencies. One held by Harvard Law School has an almost identical text under the same printer's name, Keys, who, in Harvard's version, is designated "Keys, Printer, Carlisle." In that version, the murder occurred "near the city of Carlisle," the execution was "on Saturday last" and the body "was given to the surgeons for dissection." Also, about half of the verses are rendered as prose. No copies listed on OCLC or Library Hub.
