Paperback. The pages of 'The Diary' reveal the unimaginable: that over 130yrs ago, the legendary serial killer at work in London's Whitechapel kept a record of his bestial mutilations of women. The writer of the horrific journal is James Maybrick, a depraved drug-taking, womanising, 49yr old Liverpool cotton merchant with a history of domestic violence. In this analysis of his diary, the author explains all about the origins of the text, the rigorous scientific analysis it has endured and reveals startling new information about Maybrick's shadowy background. All this, combined with a chilling confession scratched into a watch 'I am Jack. J. Maybrick.' provide powerful justification that Maybrick was Jack the Ripper. The diary itself is reproduced in full, so that you too can judge whether these are the deeply disturbing words of Jack the Ripper himself, reaching out from across the abyss of more than a century. Illus. + Maps, Facsimile of the Diary of Jack the Ripper, Transcript of the Diary of Jack the Ripper + Index. 470pp. p/back. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
