Curious Punishments of Bygone Days
by Alice Morse Earle
Publisher: Loompanics Unlimited 1896
Number of pages: 149

This book may serve to help you to have a better understanding of our legal system and its many problems; and it may, too, lead to the conclusion that you are indeed privileged to live under your own constitutional and legal system.
