Product Description

This is No. 17. 'The Vile Victorians: Crime & Punishment', in The Horrible Histories Partwork (magazine - fortnightly) collection published by Eaglemoss publications, priced originally (in 2003) at 1.99. It came with 4 Wild N' Wicked cards on the front in a sealed foil packet, including a Foul N' Freaky card. As with all the issues in this series, it is based on the bestselling books by Terry Deary and expertly illustrated in full colour from cover to cover, on all 24 pages, by Martin Brown. Contents: 1. Terrible Times: Jailhouse Rot - Criminal capers and scare-making papers - how Victorians dealt with their villains. 2. Who's Who? Law and Gore - two gents who filled the jails and a pair of murdering monsters. 3. Front Page News : Penny Dreadful - a gory read, but don't believe a word of it! 4. Life and Strife: a) Slum Trouble - Dare to enter a London 'rookery' that's more like a crook-ery. b) Tough for Tots - will Tiny Tim make it to childhood? c) Crooked Questions - get grilled by the Victorians. d) Cops 'n' Codswallop - problems for the first police force - and some of their idiotic ideas. e) Wicked Fun - relax for a while, Victorian style - by killing rats or singing soppy songs! 5. Petrifying Places: a) A Silent Prison - Gaze inside the grim wonder of Coldbath Fields, a 'silent-system' jail. b) Bars and Boats - Prison life not miserable enough? The vile Victorians had ways to make it worse! 6. Awesome Activities: Puzzles - Find out what Victorian detectives would have said about your teachers - then help out some awful actors
