Editorial Reviews for this title:
"Little Ease" - a cell only four feet square and nine feet high, in which it was impossible to lie down. "The Duke of Exeter's Daughter" and "Skeffington's Gyves" - two of the many excruciating versions of the rack. This text offers an account of instruments of torture through the ages.
