Idea Factory: An Uncommon Criminal

Born in 1838, Edwin Turner Osbaldeston encountered many walls in his life. Born into near poverty in working class Great Britain, he was able to scale the walls of his social standing as a charming, resourceful rogue. Ship's surgeon, deserter from the Royal Artillery, world traveler, "professor," con artist and impostor, he crossed many international borders.

Osbaldeston managed numerous escapes from prison and captivity. The one wall he was not able to scale was his affliction with Narcissistic Personality Disorder that was at the root of his many troubles and alienation from family and associates.
