Official Notable British Trials series to be revived
We are delighted to announce that the world-renowned book series Notable British Trials, published from 1905 to 1959 by William Hodge, is to be revived after a gap of 58 years, with new cases added to the existing catalogue of 83 titles, which include the trials of Dr Crippen, Florence Maybrick, William Palmer and Oscar Wilde.
Mango Books has been granted exclusive permission by William Hodge Holdings to use the official series imprint, and three new titles are currently in preparation. These will become nos. 84, 85 and 86 in the NBT series, with the first scheduled for publication in September 2017. Further volumes are being planned.
Adam Wood of Mango Books commented: “We are honoured to have been entrusted with the safekeeping of the revered Notable British Trials imprint, and very excited to be in a position to bring new trials to the collection. Our intention is to adhere as closely as possible to the famous NBT brand, both in terms of aesthetics and the vision of the original publisher.”
Laurence Hodge of William Hodge Holdings said: “We are delighted to support Mango Books’ exciting plans to bring the Notable British Trials series into the 21st century, and look forward to seeing which cases will be selected to add to the existing catalogue.”
