Description
Also the author of A Grim Almanac of Jack the Ripper's London and Prisons and Prisoners in Victorian Britain, this macabre calendar from Neil Storey offers a month-by-month chronicle of the darker side of historical Essex. This English country has been home to witchfinder-general Matthew Hopkins, notorious highwayman Dick Turpin, long-serving hangman William Calcraft, unfortunate Agnes Waterhouse (the first woman to be executed for witchcraft, in 1566), and a pickled Crusader unearthed at Danbury Church in 1779. If it is horrible, if it is ghastly, if it is strange, and if it happened in Essex, then it is here, in a book illustrated with period engravings, newspaper reports, photographs, and original documents.
