Hardback, 1st edn. SIGNED BY KEITH SKINNER and CAROLINE MORRIS. 'Every bit as mysterious as the Whitechapel murders themselves, the 'Ripper Diary' has intrigued and infuriated both historical researchers and 'Ripperologists' since it first came to light in 1992. Either one of the most sensational finds of the 20th century or one of its most brilliant literary hoaxes, the diary of Jack the Ripper has created its own tangled and tortuous history. It is this history which the authors disentangle in a work of literary sleuthing. They offer a masterful reassessment of the evidence and a wealth of insight into the personalities involved in the diary story. An intriguing and compelling investigation which will appeal to all interested in true crime and especially to all fascinated by Jack the Ripper.' Illus. + Index. 280pp. 8vo. h/back. As usual an excellently produced book from Sutton Publishing. PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED AND FLAT SIGNED BY KEITH SKINNER AND CAROLINE MORRIS. Includes a tipped-in envelope with review cuttings plus many column inches of a piece by Melvin Harris attacking the authors and denouncing the book's contents. An interesting read! From the library of Paul Daniel, ex-editor of the 'Ripperologist' magazine (December 1996 No. 8 - February 2000 No. 27), with a tipped-in post-it note written by Paul to bep and tiny sticker on the protective film to tail of sp. with '2003' in black felt-tip pen. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. in F. protected dw. A fairly heavy book which may require additional if shipped overseas.
