The Tryal of Mervin Lord Audley, Earl of Castlehaven, for a Rape and Sodomy. Also the Proceedings between the Duke of Norfolk and his Dutchess
Volume II. London: Printed for E. Curll in Fleet Street (1719) - Volume II. London: Printed for E. Curll in Fleet Street (1719). Hardcover. 58pp. A record of the famous Castlehaven sodomy trial in 1631, among a number of similar publications issued by this publisher to exploit the case for his own commercial purposes and which fed on the "sodomite-hunting" that was rampant during the period. The 2nd Earl of Castlehaven was convicted of abetting the rape of his wife and of committing sodomy with his male servants and the trial was a spectacular sex scandal, resulting in the execution of Castlehaven and his servants. Included with this publication is another sensational trial from 1699 involving adultery and divorce of Henry Duke of Norfolk. Contemporary calf boards, front panel missing, front endpaper a bit browned and worn. Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
