Description

Archold, John Frederick. A Complete Practical Treatise on Criminal Procedure, Pleading, and Evidence… vol. 1. Edited by Thomas W. Waterman. 7th ed. Albany, New York: Banks & Brothers, 1860.

John Frederick Archbold (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 Treatise, 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.
