Portada
The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., 2006 - 275 pāgines
Reprint of the 1904 edition, which was limited to three hundred twenty five copies. The standard older account of the trial, it remains a valuable part of the Zenger bibliography. For many scholars the most valuable parts of this study are the "Literal Reprint of the First Edition of the Trial" and the descriptive bibliography of titles issued by the Zenger Press, the list of issues of the New York Weekly Journal and the bibliography of the trial. Taken together, these chapters provide an overview of Zenger's career, the works he printed and the historical reception of his trial to about 1900.
