xxviii + 677pp. Folio. Cloth binding. British Parliamentary Paper. A very clean copy. Report on Hyde Park riot sparked by the Sunday Trading Bill which sought to stop shopping and other activities on the Sabbath, and would have mainly affected the poor. There was also resentment at the Crimean War and the hypocrisy of the aristocracy who wanted to parade up and down Hyde Park on Sundays whilst stopping others from enjoying themselves. The first protest took place on Sunday June 25th the crowds mocked the police for three hours and threatened carriages before dispersing. The Government issued a ban on further meetings in the park but on July 1st some 150,000 people surged up and down the park. The police intervened to protect carriages and began to single out individuals, subjecting them to violence and eventually rushed the crowd with staves drawn and idespite there being no serious resistance inflicted injury to many in the crowd. The report is critical of the conduct of the police. N° de ref. de la librería 171184
