McAdoo, chief magistrate of the City of New York, compiled this volume from original sources documenting several "notorious public characters, murderers, traitors, pirates, mutineers, incendiaries, defrauders, rioters, forgers, highwaymen, footpads, pickpockets, swindlers, receivers, and extortioners," as given in The Criminal Recorder of 1804. Tyburn was the infamous site of London's gallows. An exceptionally nice copy of a scarce book.
