A Narrative of the Supposed Inhuman Murder of an Infant, by Its Mother! With Full Particulars of Her Confession. [London]: G. Smeeton, Printer, 74, Tooley Street, [c.1834]. 10" x 7-1/2" broadside. Single-column text below headline. Moderate toning, some edgewear and a few tiny chips, a few creases to corners. $650. * This broadside offers an account in two parts. The first part, "extracted from the Weekly Dispatch, Sept. 7, 1834," is an account of the discovery of the baby's body prior to the coroner's inquest. The second part, from the Morning Advertiser, September 9, 1834, records the conclusions of the inquest. The defendant, Harriet Chalice, a household servant, was declared guilty of concealing the birth of a child, who was stillborn. Having hid her pregnancy, she delivered her baby herself, then threw the baby out of a window. Chalice's fate is unknown; the broadside says she "became exceedingly ill" after disposing of her baby and "sunk into exhaustion...without the least hope of recovery." OCLC locates 1 copy (Harvard Law School).
