Previously unpublished letters & documents from the files of Hosea Morrill Knowlton, the attorney appointed to prosecute Miss Lizzie A. Borden in 1893 for the brutal murders of her father & stepmother. Though she was acquitted, the mystery surrounding this world-famous case still fascinates. From the archives of the Fall River Historical Society, these unabridged papers have not seen the light of day in over a century. Materials in the collection include personal correspondence, advice from professionals & citizens across the country, indictments, summonses, & autopsies. This book presents the reader with an unbiased look at the case in the first collection of original documents published concerning it. Also in the text are the transcribed notebooks of Attorney Knowlton, featuring notes taken as he reviewed preliminary testimony in preparation of his prosecution. Thirty photographs & illustrations, many previously unpublished, include rare autopsy photographs. Two extensive glossaries provide supplemental biographical information. A must for those long interested in Lizzie Borden as well as those intrigued by the inner workings of the prosecution of a nineteenth-century murder trial. Fully indexed.
