Hardback. 1st US Edn. Despite the author's inability to consult official archives, he managed to uncover the details of Prince 'Eddys' private life (Edward VII's elder son). Late around 1970 an extraordinary story ran around the world that the Duke of Clarence might have been 'Jack the Ripper'. In testing the validity of this rumour, the author came up with his own theory, and names the Ripper, explaining both the murderer and the motives for his horrible crimes. Also includes the notorious court-cases revolving around the existence of the male brothel in Cleveland Street. The compassionate story of a weak, charming character endowed with good looks, high rank and a fascination for both men and women. Illus., Appendix, Bibliog. and Index. Endpapers: Whitechapel in the 1880s, showing the locations of the murders committed by Jack the Ripper. 253pp. 8vo. h/back. Nr. F. in Vg. dw. which has signs of label removal to back panel.
