Mrs. Maybrick's Own Story: My Fifteen Lost Years (Expanded, Annotated) - Florence Elizabeth Maybrick Summary

A true story of an American woman arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to hang for the murder of her British husband. In its day, it was one of the most sensational cases of the 19th century. Here, Florence Maybrick tells of the horror and devastation of being separated from her children, thrown into solitary confinement, and struggling to maintain sanity. For fifteen years she struggled to hang on and gained a remarkable set of supporters on both sides of the Atlantic, including Lincoln's former secretary (later Secretary of State) John Hay. Queen Victoria herself was apprised of the proceedings, as was U.S. Ambassador to Britain, Robert Todd Lincoln. Mrs. Maybrick relates the saga of her ordeal and her final emancipation. She made an eloquent and impassioned appeal for prison reform. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

Trial of Mrs. Maybrick - Henry Brodribb Irving Summary

James Maybrick, a Liverpool cotton broker, died on 11th May, 1889. A suspicion had arisen in the minds of some of those attending Mr. Maybrick during his illness that his wife was attempting to poison him. She was arrested and tried for his murder at the Liverpool Assizes, convicted and sentenced to death on 7th August, 1889. This sentence was commuted by the Home Secretary to one of penal servitude for life. Mrs. Maybrick served fifteen years of imprisonment, and was released on 25th January, 1904. The justice of Mrs. Maybrick's conviction was gravely questioned at the time and has been the subject of criticism ever since.

The Health of Prisoners - Richard Creese,J. Bearn Summary

In eighteenth-century Britain, gaols were places of temporary confinement, where inmates stayed while awaiting punishment. With the rise of the 'penitentiary' from the early nineteenth century, custodial institutions housed prisoners for much longer periods of time. Prisoners were supposed to be reformed as well as punished during their incarceration. From at least the time of John Howard (1726-1790), the health of prisoners has been part of the concern of philanthropists and others concerned with the wider functions of prisons. The Victorians established a Prison Medical Service, and members of the medical profession have long been involved in caring for the mental and physical needs of prisoners. For two centuries, prison overcrowding has been identified as a major cause of mortality and morbidity in prisons. Historical debates thus often have a modern ring to them, which make the essays in this volume particularly timely.

L'a-t-elle empoisonné? - Kate Colquhoun Summary

Liverpool, le 11 mai 1889. James Maybrick succombe à une maladie dont les médecins ne savent déterminer la nature ni la cause. Florence, sa jeune épouse américaine, est immédiatement soupçonnée de l’avoir empoisonné à l’arsenic. Mais cette substance est aussi l’ingrédient majeur des remèdes et toniques consommés par son mari depuis sa jeunesse... Florence est accusée de meurtre et appelée à comparaître. Férocement débattue au tribunal et relayée en « une » des principaux journaux, cette affaire riche en rebondissements et en polémiques a retenu l’attention de la population pendant des mois. À travers la reconstitution d’un fait divers retentissant, Kate Colquhoun analyse avec une grande finesse les paradoxes et dilemmes qui marquèrent la société anglaise de la fin de l’ère victorienne. « Une histoire captivante, détaillée à la perfection, où affleure sans cesse la sensation de danger et de tragédie imminente. » (Kirsty Wark, The Telegraph)

The Poisoned LIfe of Mrs. Maybrick - Bernard Ryan Summary

If you were intrigued by the purported diary of Jack the Ripper or other books that have convinced experts that the notorious murderer was a Liverpool cotton broker named James Maybrick, read this true-crime biography of Maybrick’s wife. In 1889, in one of the great trials of history that produced major changes in English jurisprudence, she was tried, convicted, and sentenced to be hanged for Maybrick’s murder. This book takes you from the shipboard meeting of the 18-year-old American girl and the 42-year-old Englishman in 1881 to her death in 1941 as a lonely derelict whose past was unknown. You get details of the reprehensible treatment of Mrs. Maybrick by her husband’s family. You learn what happened when she weekended in London with Maybrick’s handsome associate. You watch as Maybrick succumbs to an arsenic diet. You discover why the press found her guilty before the trial, yet England’s leading barrister proved her not guilty in the public mind despite a hanging judge and jury. You learn the details of the uproar that followed, the last-minute-before-hanging commutation to imprisonment, the 15-year trans-Atlantic effort to get her released, her return to America and acclamation, and her years as "the cat woman" in a tiny cabin in rural Connecticut.
