Punishment and Reformation: An Historical Sketch of the Rise of the Penitentiary System
 Picture
Publisher: Thomas Y. Crowell & Company Publishers, 1895 New York.
Book. Book condition: Fair to Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "..A great frivolous interest in crime is demonstrated by the attention paid to it in the daily journals; why not hope that a serious interest may also be taken in suggestions for its suppression? This is not a book on prisons, much less on the organization and government of prisons. It is rather designed to be an aid to legislation and to the formation of a correct public opinion, which must in the end control legislation. Its aim is to give the ordinary reader a clear and connected view of the change in the attitude of the law toward crime and criminals, during the century now drawing to its close, and of the honorable part which the United States has borne in the movement for a better recognition of the rights even of convicted criminals.." xi + 339 pages with index. Book is in FAIR to GOOD condition; some damage to hinges, but binding is still tight; text pages clean; better than a reading copy. No dust jacket.
