Author Bickerstaff, Isaac, 1735-1812.

Title The life and adventures of Ambrose Gwinett, [electronic resource] : apprentice to an attorney at law, who for a murder which he never committed, was tried, condemned, executed, and hung in chains, in old England; yet lived many years afterwards, and in his travels found the man in the West Indies actually alive; for the supposed murder of whom he had been really executed. : Demonstratively proving, that condemnations upon circumstantial evidence are injurious to innocence, incompatible with justice, and therefore ought always to be discountenanced especially in cases of life and death.
