An interesting account of this famous man...,
This review is from: Dick Turpin - The Myth of the English Highwayman. (Hardcover)
Theres lots more to this book than meets the eye. Plenty of information on the crimes and punishment of the 18th Century in England to boot as well as the story of the notorious criminal Dick Turpin.
Everyone has heard of him, but do they really KNOW about him? Reading this book you will do. Pictures illustrate this book throughout.
Essential reading for anyone interested and/or studying crime, and is also a lovely book to look at in general. Looks great on a bookshelf. Well researched by a leading expert in criminology and history.
