Charles Peace III
Odds & Sods. Top illustration from the Illustrated Police News, 22 February 1879. Review of Judge Parry's Drama of the Law from St. John's Evening Herald, 20 Aug 1924. Charles Peace the Master Criminal must have been a penny dreadful but all I have is this photocopy from some loose clippings in the Barry Ono collection. A Regent Theatre melodrama also from Ono, and the Magnificent Plate from Charles Peace; or, the Adventures of a Notorious Burglar published by Illustrated Police News proprietor George Purkess, Jr.
