This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Much care has been taken to accomplish this result, which is of special use to students, writers, and investigators, who often find in an early or particular edition of a work matter of especial interest and value, not to be found elsewhere. Another collection of very great importance is that of trials, both civil and criminal. Included in this collection may be mentioned the Sessions papers, or the proceedings at the sessions of the Peace and Oyer and Terminer, held at Justice Hall in the Old Bailey from December, 1729, to October, 1834, and the reports of the Central Criminal Court from November, 1834, to the present time, covering a period..
