Paperback. SIGNED, NUMBERED LTD. EDN. 'This book sprang from an article appearing in 'Ripperologist' magazine, #41, June 2002 entitled "Mary Kelly is Dead.".....There are radically differing opinions regarding many different aspects of this Victorian murder mystery; while we continuously expand and expound on these views, and in the process judge each other, it seems the only thing that we can be definitely certain of is uncertainty....Although we are more than a hundred years removed, we should try to do our best to think from the inside: from the inside of the ghetto, the slums, the "abyss"...from the streets of Whitechapel and Spitalfields as they were in 1888. We'll never know the whole story, but we've come a long way. Or have we? This book is not necessarily intended for beginners, but may serve as a starting point for further exploration...although the basic facts are presented, this is more so for those who are fairly well-versed in the study of the Whitechapel Murders. It is a sort of running commentary that, no doubt, will be dated by the time you read this.' Part One: Is this Really Necessary?; Part Two: Framing the Murders; Part Three: The Critical, Controversial Conclusions; Part Four: Last Words. Illus. in both b/w and colour + an Abstract Bibliography and Sources List. 124pp. p/back. NUMBERED (37/100) AND SIGNED BY JOHN MALCOLM. Limited to 100 copies. Lightly sunned covers, tiny sticker to tail of sp. with '2005' written in black felt-tip pen o/w Nr. F. Extremely Scarce.
