Notes

Second, enlarged edition, first published 1889. The initial publication, and also this extensively revised and augmented edition, were "encouraged by" the Howard Association - the world's oldest penal reform organisation, now the Howard League - bookplate recording their presentation of this copy - "Kindly acknowledge safe receipt" - the front pastedown. The author, a Quaker reformer, and founding secretary of the association, was much impressed by a visit to the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia becoming a strong advocate of the "separate system" implemented there. This is the best edition of his major work. "Autograph" ownership stamp to the front free endpaper of German Sims Woodhead, professor of pathology at Cambridge and sometime president of the Royal Medical Society, evidently the original recipient.
