   schema:reviewBody ""Of all London's prisons Newgate was the most notorious. In this new book Stephen Halliday brings to life its riotous, cruel and colourful story." "From the twelfth to the twentieth century Newgate occupied the site if one of the ancient Roman gates of London. It was rebuilt five times before being demolished and replaced by the Old Bailey. The second prison was built by the Mayor of London, Richard Whittington, and bore his stature, complete with cat. The last was built by George Dance, his design replacing the one burnt to the ground by the Gordon rioters in 1780. Newgate housed, among many others, Daniel Defoe, Titus Oates and the Italian libertine Giacomo Casanova." "Stephen Halliday mixes contemporary accounts, illustrations and biographical sketches to throw new light on the history of this building whose name has passes into the language in an ominous phrase: 'as black as Newgate's knocker'."--BOOK JACKET." ;
