Life in English Prisons (100 Years Ago), by Davis Nicoll

Published by the Kate Sharpley Library in 2005, 18 pages. Pamphlet (N3982P1)

This pamphlet is David Nicoll's personal account of English prisons at the end of the 19th century...

From the rear side cover: David Nicoll was imprisoned for protesting against the notorious police conspiracy against the Walsall Anarchists. In 1892 Inspector Melville (with the aid of his informer and agent provocateur Coulon) set up a 'Walsall bomb plot' which earned four workers sentences of five and ten years penal servitude. Nicoll was one of the foremost campaigners for their release. When he asked rhetorically if policemen and judges who could create such plots and frame innocent people for their political ideas were 'fit to live', he too was given a taste of Life in English Prisons.

The condition of the pamphlet is generally excellent. The cover is clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
