Title: Dying Speeches and Bloody Murders : Crime Broadsides Collected by the Harvard Law School Library

URL: http://broadsides.law.harvard.edu/

Collection: A-Sites: Archived Harvard Websites

Description: The Harvard Law School Library's collection of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British crime broadsides dates from 1932 with the purchase from the London bookseller Marks & Company of a folio scrapbook entitled Executions of criminals: more generally known by the uninviting name of "Dying speeches." Acquired as a complement to the Library's extensive collection of eighteen- and nineteenth-century British and American trials, the scrapbook contained more than 280 broadside dying speeches, engravings, newspaper clippings, and holograph pages pertaining to sensational London crimes and executions primarily during the period 1820-1840. Additional examples have been acquired in the years since, making the Law School Library's collection of more than 500 broadsides one of the largest recorded and is the first to be digitized in its entirety.
