With a black and white text map showing where the eight murders were committed.*** 190 pages (including foreword & map). 222 mm x 144 mm.***True first edition.***Scarce.***Near fine in black cloth-covered boards with gilt titles to spine. No inscriptions. Spine tight. Tiny bookseller label to bottom of front pastedown 'Clifford Elmor Books': a specialist true crime bookseller.

Back panel of dustwrapper has a couple of small stains, is slightly browned and discoloured (white background). No tears or chips, front cover bright.***Without premeditation, a man murders eight of his neighbours--and by due process of law is judged sane. This is the true chilling story of a few horrific hours in the life of Dale Merle Nelson---Nelson was a moody but generally likeable member of a small farming community of British Columbia who suddenly commits eight vicious murders, in a single night of horror. Does a perfectly (and, as later judged, legally) sane man go out in the night and kill and mutilate eight of his neighbours, one of them a baby girl? Was he suffering a personality disorder, or was his mind diseased? Were his actions triggered by LSD? Is the law's definition of insanity, as set down in the Criminal Code (of Canada and Britain), inconsistent with modern psychiatry and therefore not in the best interests of justice? ***In a cool, detailed hour-by hour narrative of the case of Dale Merle Nelson, Larry Still, a British journalist, reconstructs the crime - including the dramatic man hunt in which Nelson was more hunter that hunted - and also provides a riveting analysis of the ten day trial. (Quote from inside front jacket blurb).***'Larry Still, a former Time Magazine contributing editor and correspondent'. *** 'Dr. W. Lindesay Neustatter is Honorary consultant in Psychiatry to the Royal Northern Hospital; among the books he has written are "Psychological Disorder" and "Crime and The Mind of the Murderer." '(Quote from inside back jacket blurb).***An extremely hard to find, specialist, true crime first edition title of research interest to the criminal pathologist, psychologist, and also a detailed research source for the crime writer or true crime writer.***Rare.***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Seller Inventory # 1587
