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, has been 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 two new titles have already been published. These have become nos. 84 and 85 in the NBT series, with nos. 86, 87 and 88 currently in preparation.

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.”
