9 The Queen against Robert Pate; Trial of Robert Pate, at the Central Criminal Court, for assaulting The Queen 11th July 1850
1st Edition in This Form Unbound Very Good 15 x 24cm Approx 
52 pages (2 numbered pages to each page, so actually 26 page) unbound, cut from ?, with cut marks to edge of 1st 6 pages. Contents Very good, clean & tight. This is very interesting historical document as it gives a background of Pate as stated in court and his erratic/strange lifestyle. And the witnesses statements and cross examination given in court. The Queen had visited Cambridge House in Piccadilly on 27 June 1850, in order to see her dying uncle, Prince Adolphus, At about 6:20pm, her carriage was leaving the courtyard when Robert Pate, formerly an officer in the British Army, beat her quite forcibly on the head with a walking stick/ cane that he was carrying. He was immediately arrested and was quickly put on trial. He plead insanity, the judges found him sane. Pate was given the maximum sentence, 7 years of penal transportation. In August 1850, Robert Pate was sent to Van Diemen's Land, which is today known as Tasmania. Pate served his 7 years of penal servitude, during which he may have accumulated riches, possibly gold. He returned to England, and his wife, in early 1860. This item is Not dated, but printed postscript rear states it appears from home office papers he served his time as not listed in convicts who died between 1854-7. so most likely printed 1858-1860.

10 The Queen against Simon Bernard 1858 Trial of Simon Bernard (for his involvement in the 1858 plot with Felice Orsini to assassinate Napoleon III in Paris).
1st Edition in This Form Unbound Very Good 15 x 24cm Approx 
178 pages (numbered 887 to 1064, so 178 pages, but as 2 pages to each page is 89 actual pages). Unbound, contents very good, clean & tight, edge damage to 1st & last page. Historically interesting. It is for his involvement in the 1858 plot to assassinate Napoleon III in Paris. and gives a background of the case as stated in court. And the bombs used were made in England by gunsmith Joseph Taylor and tested in Sheffield and Devonshire, also the witnesses statements and cross examination given in court. Not sure if complete or lacking some notes at rear. Simon François Bernard (1817-1862) was a French surgeon and republican revolutionary. He is best known for his involvement in the 1858 plot of Felice Orsini to assassinate Napoleon III. Bernard was a Fourierist. He was given a state trial in England, and was defended by Edwin John James and Henry Hawkins; and was sensationally acquitted. He had opted for a completely English jury, and his defence council's rhetoric outweighed the summing-up of the judge, which tended towards a conviction. At the end of 1857, Orsini briefly visited England, where he contacted gunsmith Joseph Taylor and asked him to make six copies of a bomb of Orsini's own design; it would explode on impact and used fulminate of mercury as an explosive. The bomb was tested in Sheffield and Devonshire with the aid of French radical Simon Bernard. Satisfied, Orsini returned to Paris with the bombs and contacted other conspirators, Giuseppe Pieri, Antonio Gomez and Carlo di Rudio (later changed to Charles DeRudio). On the evening of 14 January 1858, as the Emperor and Empress were on their way to the theatre in the Rue Le Peletier, the precursor of the Opera Garnier, to see Rossini's William Tell, Orsini and his accomplices threw three bombs at the imperial carriage. The first bomb landed among the horsemen in front of the carriage. The second bomb wounded the animals and smashed the carriage glass. The third bomb landed under the carriage and seriously wounded a policeman who was hurrying to protect the occupants. Eight people were killed and 142 wounded, though the emperor and empress were unhurt. Napoleon, the first modern European politician, realized that he and Eugénie de Montijo had to proceed to the performance and appear in their box. Orsini himself was wounded on the right temple and stunned. He tended to his wounds and returned to his lodgings, where police found him the next day. Undated printed c1860.
