Curious Punishments of Bygone Days

Publisher: Loompanics Unlimited
ISBN/ASIN: 1161395849
Number of pages: 149

Description:
An accumulation of notes on old-time laws, punishments and penalties evoked this volume. The subject is not a pleasant one, though it often has a humorous element; but a punishment that is obsolete gains an interest and dignity from antiquity and its history becomes endurable because it has a past only and no future.
