Softcover. SIGNED. In the Autumn of 1888, evil stalked the streets of London's East End, as a series of prostitutes were found brutally murdered in the dark alleys of Whitechapel. With the advent of the mass communication age, news of the discoveries flashed round the world within hours. In Ireland, a nation whose people had been pilloried by the English press for being unruly, rebellious and in league with criminals, and whose leaders were about to face a public inquiry accusing them of promoting terrorism, the crimes were an opportunity to turn the tables on their accusers. Through the words of the London Correspondents, the Irish press turned their critical eye on the state of England and painted a vivid picture of the society in whose midst walked Jack the Ripper. Illus. 288pp. 8vo. softcover. PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED AND FLATSIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Sl. fading to sp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers. Becoming scarce.
