True Crime - Penny Weekly Style

| No Comments

Something Different

for lovers of True Crime:

As a schoolboy, Charles Dickens took a copy of The Terrific Register every week, and later recalled how it 'frightened my very wits out of my head, for the small charge of a penny weekly; which considering that there was an illustration to every number, in which there was always a pool of blood, and at least one body, was cheap.'
The selection from The History Press contains the most gruesome tales from this 185-year-old publication. Many of these tales have not appeared in print since Charles Dickens himself read them. Richly illustrated with original woodcuts, it will fascinate anyone with an interest in true crime.
