About this Item

American ripperologist Stephen Wright's copy with a signed dedication from the authors, two letters to Wright about the availability of the book to the U.S.A., and a publisher's press release. A concise, clear and highly visual account of the Whitechapel murders, based on the researches of Andy and Sue Parlour. Andy is related to the first victim, "Polly" Ann Nichols, and related anecdotes of family history that bring the background alive. Working within an emigre East End community in Essex, Andy and Sue have collected various pieces of new evidence and a possible artefact-the shawl worn by the fourth victim, Catharine Eddowes. New background material is presented on four of the five victims for the first time, and the Parlours believe they have cracked an important code about the murders, revealing a pattern that implicates the Houses of Parliament. Old oral traditions about a royal doctor or the Queen's son being involved are explored with new facts that open up the possibility of a royal conspiracy at work. Kevin O'Donnell has taken the researches of the Parlours and composed a highly readable narrative of the society of 1888 and the background to the murders. While being open-minded about the conclusions drawn, he has always insisted on only recording what is plausible, and making it clear when something is hard fact and when it is speculation. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 016589
