Summary
This collection contains lists of cases, handwritten notes, and miscellaneous manuscripts relating to criminal law. The bulk of the collection consists of lists of criminal cases from the assizes, labeled by county and year. There are also handwritten notes on cases at both the assizes and the Queen's Bench, some of them submitted by magistrates. The notes contain eyewitness accounts of criminal activity and other witness statements. Some notes contain lists of officials such as the members of jail committees. These notes provide an inside look into nineteenth-century criminal trials, as well as insight into the thought processes of the magistrates judging the offenders. The collection also includes a plan for constructing a more humane jail. Architectural plans include more natural light for the prisoners, and there is a listing of well-defined duties and professional standards for the officers. There are reflections on all aspects of prison life, including the clothing for female prisoners. There are also Italian materials, including rules regarding prisons (Regolamento circa la Casa di Correzione), that reflect the nineteenth-century trend toward more humane but regulated confinement. Finally, there is a list of pamphlets written on subjects related to criminal justice and policing, including "A plan for preventing robberies within twenty miles of London" (1751) and "Origin and effects of a police set on foot by His Grace the Duke of Newcastle" (1758) written by Sir John Fielding, the criminal law reformer who started England's first professional police force, the Bow Street Runners. The earliest is "The origin of the power and duty of constables" (1677). There are also pamphlets on grand juries, justices of the peace, laws against immorality, jury charges, vagrants, the preservation of health, and criminal reform, as well as several pamphlets on the Watch and other police forces
