TRIAL OF CHARLES B. HUNTINGTON FOR FORGERY. PRINCIPAL DEFENCE: INSANITY. PREPARED FOR PUBLICATION BY THE DEFENDANT'S COUNSEL, FROM FULL STENOGRAPHIC NOTES TAKEN BY MESSRS. ROBERTS & WARBURTON, LAW REPORTERS
New York: John S. Voorhies, Law Bookseller and Publisher, No. 20 Nassau Street., 1857. xii, 480pp. Modern buckram, gilt-lettered spine. Light scattered foxing, Very Good. A great Irish-American trial lawyer and a leading light of the New York bar for over twenty years, James Brady represented Huntington. "He was intensely interested in the subject of insanity, of which he made a special study in all its phases" [DAB]. In defending Huntington unsuccessfully on this ground, Brady put forward the doctrine of 'Moral Insanity,' with expert medical testimony. His introduction passionately argues the need to "promote the increase of valuable scientific knowledge" in this area; the need to do so, he says, prompted the publication of the work. FIRST EDITION. Cohen 12253. II Harv. Law Cat. 1109. Sabin 7314.
