About this Item

Treason Trial Inspired by Fear of the French Revolution [Trial]. Hardy, Thomas [1752-1832], Defendant. Sibly, Manoah, Reporter. The Genuine Trial of Thomas Hardy for High Treason, At the Sessions House in the Old Bailey, From October 28 to November 5, 1794. London: Printed for J.S. Jordan, 1795. Two volumes. viii, [9]-508; viii, 602 pp. Lacking half-titles. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Recent quarter cloth over marbled boards, printed paper title labels to spines, speckled edges. Moderate toning, light foxing in a few places, underlining to a few passages in Volume II, early owner signature to title page of Volume I. Ex-library. Small perforated stamp to title page of Volume II. A nice copy in a handsome binding. $750. * Only edition. A shoemaker by trade, Hardy was the founder and First Secretary of the London Corresponding Society. This was a popular association of workingmen committing to the cause of universal male suffrage. Unnerved by the excesses of the French Revolution, and eager to set an example, Hardy was indicted for high treason in 1794. The public favored Hardy's cause and he was seen as an unjustly persecuted apostle of English liberty. As the trial proved, the Crown's case, prosecuted by Lord Eldon, had little merit and Hardy was acquitted to great acclaim. This account contains a complete transcript of the trial, along with a narrative account and the texts of letters and documents introduced as evidence. English Short-Title Catalogue T73925.
