Book condition : very good. - Official account of the the civil trial between Louisa Junkers on account of her daughter Maria Elisabeth, against Jacob Pesters and his son Jan, the last of whom was accused of having courted Maria Elisabeth in such a way as to be of 'disadvantage' to her. Jacob Pesters, accused in name of his son Jan Pesters who was still a minor, in his turn Maria Elisabeth Junkers of plotting to poison his son. To prove this, he presented the court with numerous letters (the second part of this book), which turned out to be fabricated and false. In the subsequent criminal trial Jacob Peters is convicted to Swaart over het Hooft'', a public humiliation on the scaffold where the executioner swings his sword in a frightening way over the head of a kneeling sentenced person, next to life long house arrest at his own costs and a fine of 20.000 pounds.
