About This Item

1924. 1924-1959, 11 bound vols. & 1960-1970 unbound. 1924-1959, 11 bound vols. & 1960-1970 unbound. Cases on the Docket of the Old Bailey, 1924-1970 Central Criminal Court of England and Wales. Calendar of Prisoners, For the Session Commencing on Tuesday, The 8th of January, 1924 [complete through December 1970]. London: Printed by Merser & Sons, 1924-1970. Calendars through 1959 bound into 11 books in pebbled cloth, gilt titles to spines. Moderate shelfwear, some fading to bindings of first 6 books, remaining calendars unbound, as issued. Moderate toning to most calendars, some have light browning. Ex-library. Stamps and other library marks to title page, bookplates to pastedowns of bound volumes. $2,500. * A rare, continuous, almost half-century run of Old Bailey session calendars, each with an index of names, listing nearly 50,000 accused persons. The entries include names, ages, occupations and charges, most described in detail. It is a remarkable record of criminal activity. Theft, Bigamy, assault, fraud and homosexual acts (illegal until July 1967) are common offenses. The unbound calendars were stamped and bundled into paper wrappers by year. They were clearly intended to be bound, as were the calendars for the earlier sessions. OCLC locates a single 1922 calendar at Harvard Law School, but no extensive collections like ours.
