***Printed on good quality paper watermarked McMurray Maker 1875. A special edition reprinted from the "Times" covering the parliamentary proceedings of the Kenealy debate on the 23rd April and earlier. "Dr. Kenealy studied law at Dublin and was called to the English Bar in 1847. He was leading council [counsel] in the Tichborne claim which became the longest case on record. His conduct during and after the trial brought him before a professional tribunal and he was eventually debarred. He was elected as representative for Stoke on 14 Feb. 1875 and took his seat on the 18th. He moved for a Royal Commission into the conduct of the Tichborne trial on the 23rd and was defeated 433 votes to 1. He wrote an eight volume folio of a nine volume work on the Tichborne trials before his defeat at the 1880 elections and subsequent death." - National Library of Australia. #16568
