¶ The autobiography of Renton Nicholson, 1809-1861: pawnbroker, gambler, cigar merchant, prisoner, raconteur, and fake judge. A journey into the seamy underside of Victorian England. Nicholson may not have been purely a scoundrel, but he was certainly a rogue, and he lived one of the most fascinating lives of the 19th Century.
