This unusual, contemporary two-volume set describes the famous trial of Queen Caroline, wife of George IV, on a charge of adultery. It is taken verbatim from the journals of the House of Lords, where the trial was held, and includes a number of engravings of the main protagonists. Much that was reprehensible was proved in the trial; but, partly due to the effective defence of Lord Brougham (q.v. a27), there was a popular move in Caroline's favour and the case was abandoned. She was forcibly excluded from her husband's coronation in 1821 and died a few days later
