Studies in Scarlet

Last Tuesday's post directed you to "bloody murder" from the Harvard Law Library. This week, we are following it up with adultery, abduction, and seduction. Also from the Harvard Law Library, Studies in Scarlet presents trial narratives involving marriage and sexuality from 1815-1914. This fascinating collection "consists of the stories of ordinary men and women thrust into the public eye when their marriages and love affairs went wrong or their relationships did not conform to social standards."
