Notorious Blasted Rascal: Colonel Charteris and the Servant Girl's Revenge.

SKU: 14237

One of the most famous and most hated men of history, Colonel Charteris (1675-1732) was successfully prosecuted for rape by his servant girl. He was ridiculed during his lifetime and served for the model of the rake in Hogarth's The Harlot's Progress. This remarkable story is most amazing for the courage and grit of Anne Bond, the woman who dared believe no one was too powerful for justice. The History Press, England. Hb, Dj. NEW. $22.00
