  • Women in Victorian Crime

    Hello all,

    I found an interesting link, below, on the subject of women in Victorian Crime.

    http://www.brainpickings.org/index.p...omen-in-crime/

    The volume is entitled

    The Penguin Book of Victorian Women in Crime: Forgotten Cops and Private Eyes from the Time of Sherlock Holmes

    It’s the sequel to 2009′s The Penguin Book of Gaslight Crime: Con Artists, Burglars, Rogues, and Scoundrels from the Time of Sherlock Holmes.


    This may be of some interest to some of you.

    best wishes

        Excellent stuff. There was also a fair bit of info on Victorian era women crims in Donald Thomas's "The Victorian Underworld", a fantastic source of information. I remember the case of one particularly notorious lodging house keeper, but sadly, her name escapes me at the moment....

        Cheers,
        Adam.
