Hardback. The author was a journalist who frequently reported Jack the Ripper stories, and was himself at one point a suspect, having been identified by a coffee-stallholder in Whitechapel as the man with bloodstained cuffs who had come to his stall shortly after the double event, and announced that the stallholder would hear about 2 more murders the following day. Apparently Sims' portrait advertising his latest book was the perfect likeness of the man! Sims also discovered Melville Macnaghten's suspicion of M. J. Druitt, describing the Ripper as a man known to the police and having drowned in the Thames at the end of 1888. These revelations prompted Inspector Abberline to publicise his suspicion of Severin Klosowski. Illus. + Portrait Frontis. with tissue-guard and Index. 351pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly browned eps, lightly foxed throughout + edges, with sunned sp. but still a Vg. copy of a scarce title.
