About this Item

First Edition 5 3/4' x 7 1/2'; rebound in green cloth, 283 pgs., Complete from the title pg. on; some restoration to the title page, but overall clean, near VG. Finch was one of the prosecuting counsels in the trial of the Regicides of Charles I in Oct 1660. This book is the verbatim trial record, identifying speaker, question, answer for the testimonry invovling each of the Regicides. The verdict was not in question, of course, but the formalities and show of a trial were closely adhered to with the right legal mumbo-jumbo to make it all look appropriate. The executions are described at the end, pp282-83. 'On Sturday the 13 of October 1660, betwixt nine and ten of the clock in the monring, Mr. Tho. Harrison, or, Major General Harrison, according to this Sentence was upon a Hurdle drawn from newgate to the pace called Charring-Cross, where within certain Railes lately there made a Gibbet was erected, and he hanged with his face looking towards the Banqueting house at Whitehall (the place where our late Soveraign of eternal memory was sacrificed) being half dead, he was cut down by the common Executioner, his privy members cut off before his eyss, his Bowels bu;rned, his Head severed from his Bodie, and his body divided into Quarters, which were returned back to Newgate upon the same Hurdle that carried it. His head has since set on a Pole on the top of the South-East end of Westminster Hall, looking towards London. The quarters of his Body are in like manner exposed upom sopme of the City Gates.' And so forth for each, although in several cases his gracious Majesty Cjharles II allowed the body to be buried.
