For Wilful And Corrupt Perjury, At The Yorkshire Lent Assizes, 1815. Before The Honourable Sir Alexander Thompson, Knt. Chief Baron Of His Majesty's Exchequer, And A Special Jury. Huddersfield: Sold by the Principal Booksellers in London; And the Booksellers of York, Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield, Halifax, Sheffield, Wakefield, Rochdale, Manchester, &c., 1815. 116 pp. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into nineteenth-century unlettered pebbled cloth. Light rubbing to extremities with light wear to spine ends, corners bumped, minor spotting to boards. Light toning to text, finger smudges and light foxing to a few leaves. A very good copy. $500. * First edition, second issue (with the errata all corrected). Stocks was accused of stealing and selling 10,000 tons of coal from mines in Northowram, in the West-Riding of Yorkshire, he owned in partnership with two other men. Stocks was not convicted. The trial details the contractual history of the partnership, such contentious matters as the exact legal boundaries of neighboring mines and coal-pits and the nature of written and verbal agreements. This appears to be an unrecorded issue. OCLC locates no copies of this imprint. Bookseller Inventory # 65005
