    Engraved Print: "An Exact Representation of Daniel Malden's two Surprising Escapes out of Newgate, Whilst under Sentence of Death, Drawn from the Places where he was confined", 18.5" x 14". Published and sold by the Printsellers of London in 1736. Malden, having led a "wandering, inconstant Life" turned to robbery. Once caught, he was sentenced to death for his crimes. In May 1736, while awaiting execution, he twice escaped from London's Newgate Prison. One escape was through the roof of the prison chapel, the other through a vault toilet in his cell. Malden was confident he would receive a reprieve. His hopes were dashed when he was executed in November 1736. The print has the usual creases, else fine.
