This book contains info about the Justitia as well as numerous other convict ships.

This book has a couple of pages that relay the story and fate of the Justitia. Includes the harsh treatment of Captain Bond towards the convicts. Book also contains a paragraph on what happened to Captain Bond in the US for being found guilty for the numerous deaths on the ship due to the mistreatment of the prisoners.
