Overview

A Book Of Remarkable Criminals by H. B. Irving

Henry Irving has complied a collection of the most interesting criminals. The introduction begins, ""The silent workings, and still more the explosions, of human passion which bring to light the darker elements of man's nature present to the philosophical observer considerations of intrinsic interest; while to the jurist, the study of human nature and human character with its infinite varieties, especially as affecting the connection between motive and action, between irregular desire or evil disposition and crime itself, is equally indispensable and difficult."--Wills on Circumstantial Evidence." The biographies in this work include The life of Charles Peace -- The career of Robert Butler -- M. Derues -- Dr. Castaing -- Professor Webster -- The mysterious Mr. Holmes -- Partnership in crime. The widow Gras -- Vitalis and Marie Boyer -- The Fenayrou case -and Eyraud and Bompard.

If you can get past the intro. Fairly good book. Some editing problems due to age of book. About 200 pages.

A fascinating study of various criminals from the 1800s. Very well-written and entertaining. This is a nice version too, with no typos or errors. The other comments must be for a different version. My version has an ugly criminal face on the cover.
