In the High Court of Justice. Queen's Bench Division, June 18th, 1877. The Queen v. Charles Bradlaugh and Annie Besant. (Specially Reported)

London, A. & H. Bradlaugh Bonner, [circa 1900].

Octavo, 355 pages plus mounted Woodburytype portraits (with facsimile signatures) of Bradlaugh and Besant.

Cloth lightly rubbed at the extremities, with minimal wear to a few tiny spots; inner hinges cracked but firm; old price written in small red numbers on the flyleaf; acidic text paper tanned; a very good copy.

Bradlaugh and Besant were prosecuted for publishing Charles Knowleton's 'Fruits of Philosophy'. The preface states that 'its importance lies in the fact that it is condemned - says Lord Chief Justice Cockburn - because it advocates prudential restraint to population, while also advocating early marriage'. Provenance: Torrington George Ellery (Town Clerk of Adelaide from 1872 to 1923), with his signature in ink (lightly pencilled through by a later owner).
