Notebook and wig of Justice Hawkins

A notebook and wig once belonging to the English Judge, Justice Hawkins (Henry Hawkins, 1st Baron Brampton), given to Horatio William Bottomley, Liberal MP, following an unsuccessful prosecution for fraud. According to Bottomley, Justice Hawkins shook his hand, said he was the ablest advocate he had ever listened to, and handed him the notebook and wig. The entry in the notebook is dated 1893, and contains the names of Horatio Bottomley, Sir Henry Isaacs, Joseph Isaacs and Charles Dollman -- all directors of a company called the Hansard Publishing Union, which failed, owing money to its shareholders and investors. Bottomley made several court appearances as a defendant in libel and fraud cases, and frequently acted for himself. He was also a financier, swindler, journalist and newspaper proprietor. He founded the Financial Times and the magazine John Bull. In 1912 he was forced into bankruptcy, which meant that he had to leave parliament.
