Pictures from Bygone Punishments by William Andrews (1848 – 1908), London, 1931
William Andrews appears to have had his own publishing company, and produced quite a number of books on the subject of local history and quaint interest. Bygone Punishments first appeared in 1899.
“My father hated intolerance and cruelty, and whenever public opinion, horrified by some crime, called for the ruthlessness of the lash and the scaffold, he was quick to point out the warning from the past that angry and revengeful punishment creates more ills than it cures.” (p. viii, preface to the second edition)
