Lives of the Most Remarkable Criminals was originally published in three volumes and sold by John Osborn on Paternoster Row. The volumes recount the lives, crimes and executions of eighteenth century lawbreakers. By '[setting] forth the entertainments of vice in their proper colours', the volumes were intended to provide a moral banister and reminder that, far from treading a glamorous road of pleasure, the path taken by a criminal was in fact a highway to the gallows. The original prefaces to the books, and the tales themselves, also provide invaluable insights into the history of Crown Law at the time, the grounds on which it was founded, the methods by which it prosecuted, and the judgements inflicted on criminals accordingly. This is a reprint of Arthur L. Hayward's 1927 reissue of the three volumes in one.
