It is well known that a generic compact Riemann surface of genus greater than two admits only the identity automorphism; however, examples of such Riemann surfaces with their defining algebraic equations have not appeared in the literature. In this paper we give the defining equations of a doubly infinite, two-parameter family of projective curves (Riemann surfaces if defined over the complex numbers), whose members admit only the identity automorphism.
