Notes

A complete run of the first two years of this important journal: the first periodical "in the English language devoted to the science of criminology" (founder James Wigmore, quoted by Jennifer Devroye in Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology, Volume 100, Winter 2010).; it was "an attempt to help American thinking and policy catch up with European developments" (Marcus D. Dubber ed., Foundational Texts in Modern Criminal Law, OUP 2014, p. 245). Included here is a piece on Crippen: "The Crippen and Hyde Cases Compared" (vol. II, no. 3, pp. 435-439) discussing an article from the American Law Review on "the difference between English and American methods of administering justice". There are also various papers on finger prints, blood stains, the electric chair, "crime and tattooing", "the sexual root of kleptomania", and many other related subjects, a good number having been translated from European journals. There is a full index to each volume.
