The Newgate Calendar; Comprising Interesting Memoirs of the Most Notorious Characters who Have Been Convicted of Outrages on The Laws of England Since the Commencement of the Eighteenth Century...  Four Volumes Bound as Three, Andrew Knapp and William Baldwin, Editors
41 Andrew Knapp and William Baldwin, Editors The Newgate Calendar; Comprising Interesting Memoirs of the Most Notorious Characters who Have Been Convicted of Outrages on The Laws of England Since the Commencement of the Eighteenth Century... Four Volumes Bound as Three
London J. Robins 1824 Hardcover Fair 
London: J. Robins, 1824. Originally published in 1774, The Newgate Calendar was widely read in British homes of the late 18th and 19th centuries. It is comprised of the biographies of criminals and descriptions of particularly heinous crimes committed by those criminals held in London's notorious Newgate Prison. Illustrated with quite descriptive and often quite graphic engravings, the book was popular not only as True Crime books are popular today, but as a moral guide for children and adults. This is the first Robins and Co. edition, published in four volumes (and bound as three), the first volume dated 1824; the second 1825; the third and fourth 1828. This copy has been rebound, probably at some point in the early to mid twentieth century, in three quarter dark tan smooth grained leather over tan cloth, raised spine bands, gilt lettering and gilt outlined compartments, all edges gilt. Endpapers have been replaced. Vol. I: iv, (1), 514, (2) p. Vol. II: (4), 500, (2)p. Vols. III & IV: (4), 499, (5), 404, (2)p. All three bindings are slightly cocked, with volume I having a warp to the front cover. Vol. I has also been exposed to some moisture, with the entire back cover having its surface stuck to something at one point and later peeled off - there are shards of paper stuck to it, something like newspaper, with the underlying cloth and leather discolored. The only internal signs of moisture are some staining to the last dozen leaves or so which are very light in color, and mainly confined to the top edge. There are also a few light margin dampstains in this volume affecting about fifty to sixty pages. Other volumes have only some light external wear, all have good hinges and firm bindings with no loosened pages, and clean pages with a bare scattering of foxing, no names, etc. Despite the spoiled surface to the rear cover of volume I, the set still looks sharp and handsome shelved. A clean and solid set.. Hard Cover. Fair. 8vo (21 cm x 13.5. cm).
