Hardback. A case without parallel in criminal records. The history of the case emphasised the high importance of "team work" by medical experts, and of close co-operation between them and the police, in the investigation of intricate murder cases. 'The Ruxton Case stands by itself. It is notable primarily because the extent and character of the mutilitation of the two victims (Mrs. Ruxton and Mary Rogerson) provided a problem of reconstruction which demanded for its solution anatomical work in detail not hitherto required in such cases, and because the purposive removal of identifying features suggested a novel comparison of skulls and portraits which, with other circumstantial evidence, helped to place identification beyond doubt.' With 172 Illus., Appendices and Index. 284pp. 4to. h/back. With small name insc. to ffep, sl. wear to head/tail of sp. and corners. Blue cloth with bright gilt lettering to sp. Vg+. Becoming scarce. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage, particularly if shipped overseas.
