By George Barton. From "The True Stories of Celebrated Crimes" series. Not sure if these were authorized or not -- the publication provenance and the title paper on the spine both seem a little sketch.
The hardcover's in decent trim for a 1909 publication, though: edgewear and tape damage to the boards, a weakened front hinge, a small sticker inside, and page toning as you'd expect, but it sits straight and is perfectly readable. An interesting antique curio or gift for a historian.
