The Newgate Calendar

- - posted in Ancient Archives

“The Newgate Calendar was one of those books, along with a Bible, Foxe’s book of Martyrs and the Pilgrim’s Progress, most likely to be found in any English home between 1750 and 1850.” A strange, influential and almost forgotten book describing some of those executed in Newgate Prison. One of the books in Ex-Classics.
