Notable Scottish Trials November, 1906 Second Edition in Notable British Trials January, 1911 Third Edition in Notable British Trials April, 1921 The trial of William Brodie for breaking into and robbing the General Excise Office for Scotland took place at Edinburgh on 27th and 28th August, 1788. The story of his strange career is as enthralling as any romance.
