REPORT FROM THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OF THE POLICE OF THE METROPOLIS
417pp. Folio. Attractive cloth binding. British Parliamentary Paper. HC533. Public concern over the rapid increase in London's crime rate led to the appointment of the select committee which examined the causes of crime in London and investigated means of reducing the crime rate. The committee noted that the population of the capital had risen by ninetween per cent between 1801 and 1821` while the crime rate had risent by 50%. Evidence presented to the committee led it to attribute much of the rise to the existence of commercial distress, neglect of children, and the cheap price of spirits. They felt a juvenile prison should be established and greater efforts made to prevent children turning to crime. Appendix explains duties of Bow Street police office and evidence describing the functions of the several other police forces in London. A very clean copy. Parliamentary papers of this period are rare. It was not until 1836 that provision was made for thier sale to the public. N° de ref. de la librería 134975
