Presentation copy inscribed on the first pastedown 'F Branthall [?] from the author' with the bookplate of the lawyer Geoffrey G Briggs below and a bookseller's ticket for 'Wildy and Sons Ltd, Lincoln's Inn Archway' at the foot of the page. It's not known whether this inscription is in the hand of the recently acquitted slave trader Pedro Zulueta whose trial forms the subject of the book or, more likely, a publisher's clerk for C Wood and Co. Bound in green blind stamped publisher's cloth, spine very discretely relaid, Zulueta's initials in two compartments below the title (possibly only found on presentation copies); yellow coated endpapers, some soiling, a split to the upper inner hinge, otherwise near very good.
