Hardback, 1st UK edn. Intro' by Colin Wilson. An examination of all the known evidence at the time, of all the facts and theories and nonsense that had ever been written about the Ripper. The author exploded a number of notions that had seemed to be attractive, and in particular the alleged Masonic conspiracy involving 'the highest in the land' is demolished once and for all. In examining the facts, one cannot ignore the mythology, and the book contains fascinating insights into the portrayal of the Ripper on stage and screen and on the printed page. The final chapter studies such 20th century imitators as Jack the Stripper (the Thames Nude Killer of the 1960s) - and Peter Kurten, the notorious Dusseldorf Ripper. Profusely Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 286pp. 8vo. h/back. With previous owner's neat name/date insc. to ffep o/w Nr. F. in Nr. F. sl. sunned protected dw. With tipped-in label SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Donald Rumbelow was a contributor to the Grey House Books publication 'Who Was Jack the Ripper? A Collection of Present-Day Theories and Observations'.
