Hardback. SIGNED. So far as Liverpool is concerned this is not a history book nor a guide book, but a book ranging in time from the Prehistoric up to the 1950s in which the author invites the reader to accompany him into all manner of situations. One moment we are inside the Liver clock, on the roof of Liverpool: the next pluinged more than 50ft below the earth, walking tjhe long deserted kingdom of the eccentric Joseph Williamson, the Gargantuan human mole. Strange characters stalk its pages; old Doctor Samuel Solomon, who made a Balm of Gilead and a fortune, Sarah Biffin, thje armless wonder, George Archer-Shee, real0life original of the "Windslow Boy" and Spring-Heeled Jack, the leaping terror of Everton. These, and a score of other bizarre shades are successfully invoked by the author. Also includes two chapters on James and Florence Maybrick. With an original Frontis. by Constance L. Fidler and Photographic illustrations by George Fisher. 305pp. 8vo. h/back. With tipped-in label SIGNED BY RICHARD WHITTINGTON-EGAN.
