<p><strong>John Frederick Archbold</strong> (1785-1870) was an Irish legal scholar who produced a number of treatises on topics in criminal law, pleas of the Crown, and parish law. His <em>Treatise</em>, originally published in 1822, covers public prosecutions, the structure of indictments, and the rules of criminal pleading and evidence. Additionally, it discusses Lord Campbell's Fatal Accidents Act (1846) and the reform of criminal law in the mid- to late-19th century. This work would have functioned as a practical resource for attorneys on the application of principles of criminal law under the common law.</p>
