Softcover. SIGNED, LIMITED EDN. (to 100). Edgar's Walking Guides are a new concept in tours of London. With these enjoyable walks you can experience a series of self-guided tours that have been carefully mapped out and planned to ensure that you discover and experience so much more than you would be able to on a standard sightseeing tour. Armed with an Edgar pocket-sized guide, you can leave behind the busy main roads, and set off on a voyage of genuine discovery, as you delve into the hidden and tucked away streets where many fantastic and enchanting surprises await you. Jack the Ripper is No. 1, the first in the series. Here are some of the highlights you will encounter as you make your way through the thoroughfares of Whitechapel, Spitalfields and Aldgate in the footsteps of the world's most notorious serial killer : The sites of ten Whitechapel murders, and the cemeteries in which the victims are buried. The sinister arch through which the possible first victim of Jack the Ripper passed, with a man of whose evil intent she was unaware. The crumbling remnants of the mortuary to which the bodies of several victims were taken. The police station where several of the officers who investigated the case were based. The doorway in which an infamous message was found scrawled in chalk on the wall. The buildings in which the inquests into the deaths of several victims were held. Old and historic streets, lined by 19th century houses, which as you walk along will convince you that you have somehow been transported back to that long ago era of gaslight and shadow when the spectre-like Jack the Ripper prowled the East End. The Ten Bells pub, where several of the victims may have drunk, possibly even under the steely gaze of the Ripper himself. Illus. + Map Eps in colour. 198pp. 16mo. softcover. Handy pocket-sized. SIGNED BY RICHARD AND ADAM, NUMBERED to 100 LIMTED EDITION. New.
