Hardback. The Lindbergh Baby Case. A definitive, authoritative, and comprehensive account of what at the time was referred to as, the Crime of the Century. The author, a prominent reporter, covered the whole period of the Flemington trial for the United Press. The book is prefaced by a 40,000-word essay in which the author has clarified and reduced to its simple essentials the whole complex and involved scheme of the crime and its ensuing trial. Following the author's essay is a lengthy, thorough abridged, presentation of the actual trial testimony. This testimony as edited presents every significant and important detail which led to Bruno Hauptmann's conviction for the kidnap and murder, on the night of March 1, 1932, of the infant son of Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh. It is an invaluable picture of the method whereby the state, working with grim, meticulous care, wove its net around the guilty man. Fully Illus. 565pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Neat name insc., v. lightly browned edges, faded sp. Vg. in sunned, frayed and chipped nr. vg. pcdw. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage.
