Cobbett's Trials is brilliant primary source material tha twells amazing stuff about cases that whilst lttle known are often pivotal historicaly. In the trial of Miles Sindercombe he plots to shoot Cromwell with a gun with 12 bullets & a slug. What the hell is r=that in 1657? In the attack on John Arnold he is stabbed but is wearing whalebone armour & his assailant shouts úRot him and damn him for he is wearing armour"
All human life is here. For the historian & historical novellisst this is gold dust.
The lay out can be confusing but that is what you geyt from such an old book which adds to its period charm/
