|Uit het voorwoord van Old Time Punishments :
In the year 1881, I produced a small work, entitled, “Punishments in the Olden Time,” and, to my surprise, in less than three months four thousand copies were sold. After that number had been published, and numerous flattering notices given by the critical press, I resolved to write a larger book on the same subject. The result of my labour is presented in the following pages. I hope this volume contains interesting information which does not usually come under the notice of the reader, but nevertheless important in throwing light on the history of bygone times.
In the preparation of this book, I have consulted several hundred works, and drawn facts from ancient records which still remain in manuscript; and the daily and weekly newspapers have also supplied me with items I have deemed worthy of quotation.
