Three copies of 'The Star' newspaper, 'Largest Circulation of Any Evening Paper in the Kingdom' : No. 177 dated Saturday 11 August 1888, No. 183 dated Saturday 18 August 1888, and No. 214 dated Monday 24 September 1888. Regarded by some as extra special because it was launched in 1888 and achieved a large popular circulation because of the unsolved Whitechapel murders attributed to Jack the Ripper. The Star on 24 September is historically among the most important Jack the Ripper newspapers because it contains the famous "Blood Money to Whitechapel" letter by George Bernard Shaw. It also contains a lengthy account of the Birtley murder. All three copies are folded and extremely fragile, but still Nr. Vg. considering their age.
