Memoirs of a Bow Street Runner

£14.99

Product description

This book is unique - it is the first autobiography of a Bow Street Runner ever to be published. The Runners were disbanded in 1839 and if any of Goddard's colleagues wrote their memoirs they are hardly likely to have survived. It would be unreasonable to expect another such manuscript to have been preserved so long and unearthed after such a long period. A truly fascinating piece of social history.

The book itself is in sound condition but the dustjacket is in tatters. Please refer to photographs for more details.
