About This Item

Manchester: John Haywood, 1871. Second edition with addendum. Hardcover. Good + condition. A Victorian fraud case with Australian connections which fascinated England in the 1870s. The individual was sometimes referred to as Thomas Castro or as Arthur Orton, but usually was called "the Claimant". He claimed to be the missing heir to the Tichborne baronetcy. Orton, claiming to be Sir Roger Charles Doughty Tichborne, was tried in the Court of Queen's Bench, April 23, 1874, for perjury. This was one of the longest trials at an English court, lasting 188 days. The verdict declared that the Claimant was not Roger Tichborne, that he had not seduced Katherine Doughty, and that he was indeed Arthur Orton. Orton was convicted of perjury and was sentenced to two consecutive terms of seven years' imprisonment. 8vo, 440pp. Tan library cloth binding with paper label at spine. Deaccessed by the NY Association of the Bar Library, with their stamp on the title page and shelf number sticker lower spine. Covers dusty, rubbed, splits to cloth at top edge of spine; front endpaper loose. Trove 9995150 (4 copies) at Flinders University, SL NSW, SL SA, SL Victoria.
