The Trials of Jeremiah Brandreth, William Turner, Isaac Ludlam, George Weightman, and Others for High Treason...
London: Butterworth and Sons, 1817. Two volumes, octavo, an excellent set in deep brown crushed morocco by Sangorski, spine with raised bands and gilt lettering, top edges gilt. Mourned by Shelley; sent to Australia. Rare original record of the High Treason trials that resulted from the last of the English peasant revolts, the so-called "Brandreth Riots" or "Pentrich Revolution", an armed insurrection of workers protesting against pay and conditions in the Nottingham area.Fourteen of the "conspirators" were transported to Australia (the three ringleaders, sometimes called "The Pentrich Martyrs" - Jeremiah Brandreth, William Turner and Isaac Ludlam - were hanged and beheaded). Shelley famously lamented the judgement in An Address to the People on The Death of the Princess Charlotte: 'a calamity such as the English nation ought to mourn with an unassuageable grief... '.Only the Mitchell and National Library copies of the book are recorded by Ferguson.
