First edition. A fine copy. 2003 Hard Cover. xii, 310 pp. England in the 1880s was a society in transition, shedding the skin of Victorianism and heading towards a more modern age. Promiscuity, moral decline, prostitution, unemployment, poverty, police inefficiency ... all these things combined to create a sense of uncertainty and fear. The East End of London became the focus for that fear. Here lived the uneducated, poverty-ridden and morally destitute masses. When Jack the Ripper walked onto the streets of the East End he came to represent everything that was wrong with the area and with soc... View more info

Condition: Near Fine


First edition. An excellent copy. 2001 Hard Cover. viii, 354 pp. Press coverage of the 1888 mutilation murders attributed to Jack the Ripper was of necessity filled with gaps and silences, for the killer remained unknown and Victorian journalists had little experience reporting serial murders and sex crimes. This engrossing book examines how fourteen London newspapers?dailies and weeklies, highbrow and lowbrow?presented the Ripper news, in the process revealing much about the social, political, and sexual anxieties of late Victorian Britain and the role of journalists in reinforcing social nor...

First edition. Bottom edge of front jacket panel lightly bumped. 1998 Hard Cover. xiv, 385 pp. Since October 1992 the Diary of Jack the Ripper, which purported to be written by James Maybrick, was believed to have been a hoax. However, not one person has attempted to explain how it was forged or by whom. This book claims that this is because the diary is genuine. Feldman suggests that James Maybrick was the notorious Whitechapel Murderer, and that the largest and most detailed investigation on the subject ever to be undertaken led the author through the smokescreen of an official cover-up, via...

Now, Shirley Harrison presents startling new evide... View more info

First edition. A very nice copy. 2003 Hard Cover. viii, 280 pp. Every bit as mysterious as the Whitechapel murders themselves, the Ripper Diaries have intrigued and infuriated both historical researchers and the Ripperologists since they first came to light in 1992. Either one of the most sensational finds of the 20th century or one of its most brilliant literary hoaxes, the diary of Jack the Ripper has created its own tangled and tortuous history. It is this history which Keith Skinner, Seth Linder and Caroline Morris disentangle in a work of literary sleuthing which offers a reassessment of ... View more info
