Softcover. SIGNED. This book is a revised edition of '25 Years of The Diary of Jack the Ripper', first published in 2017 in a limited hardback edition of 500 copies. Corrections have been made and new information added where applicable, including some major revelations about the diary's provenance in Chapter Three. Robert Smith's purpose is to offer a record and an assessment of what has been discovered about the physical artefact and its contents since it first emerged on 9th March 1992. As in the first edition, the book features a full-size colour facsimile of the diary. With it to hand, you can observe far more clearly the original words, grammatical errors, handwriting, variations of ink flow, blots, blemishes, and the true colour of the ink, about which much misinformation has been disseminated. (in Chapter One). Conclusion : the diary is either an original document written c. 1888/89, or it is a modern fake. There is no other feasible option. Includes : The Facsimile of the Diary, The Transcript (new transcript correcting spellings and punctuation in the original manuscript which had been mistranscribed), The Notes, Principal Sources + Index. 162pp. 4to. softcover. FLATSIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. New. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
