Washington, 1867. 122pp. Dbd. Original printed front wrapper, detached and chipped. Later institutional stamps on titlepage. Light tanning. Good. Official printing of the arguments and cross-examinations made by lawyer Edwards Pierrepont in the prosecution of John Surratt for the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln.

The case ended with a hung jury and Surratt was freed; Pierrepont went on to be appointed a United States Attorney, then Attorney General during the Grant administration. McDADE 606. MONAGHAN 889.
