<p>This is volume 2 of a two volume set. The frontispieces of these two volumes illustrate the trial of the so-called Tichborne Claimant, a famous episode of the 1870s. In 1854, Roger Tichborne, heir to an English baronetcy, was on a ship that sank. His mother, Lady Tichborne, received a letter stating that he was living in Australia under a different name. She then funded an unknown man’s travel to across the globe and became convinced that he was her son. He lived as a member of her family for several years, and following her death, attempted to claim the baronetcy in <em>Tichborne v. Lushington</em>. Instead, he was revealed to be Arthur Orton, subsequently tried for perjury, and served 10 years in prison.</p>
