A very good copy of a rare pamphlet. $500. * Only edition. A paper on the increase in crime in Warwickshire, relative to the size of population, its causes and possible remedies. The author suggests that young offenders must be punished as much as older offenders. The paper was in response to Eardley-Wilmot's A Letter to the Magistrates of England on the Increase of Crime: And an Efficient Remedy Suggested for Their Consideration, first published in 1820, which suggesting that severe punishment of juvenile offenders often led them to a lifetime of criminal activity. He also argued for better prison conditions as an aid to rehabilitation of offenders, a claim refuted in Observations.
