Hardback. Limited Facsimile Edn. (1st edn. pub. 1935 : 'Les Editions de France). SIGNED. An English translation by Molly Whittington-Egan. Intro' by Richard Whittington-Egan. In Richard's Introduction he describes the Dorsenne book as being "nearer to the time of the Ripper than to us at the end of the century, and it seems to resonate with a chilling kind of close-focus remembrance." He goes on to add that Dorsenne has "constructed what can only be categorized as a fanciful thriller out of the horrendous, real-life 'Jack L'Eventreur' saga." The authors of the 'A-Z' say about the original :"....which contains tantalising hints that he (Dorsenne) mixed some real information gleaned from a surviving policeman in the case with a great deal of gossip and probable fiction." With Notes. 146pp. 12mo. h/back. A beautifully produced small size h/b book, without question one of the 'collectables' of the future. With tipped-in labels SIGNED BY MOLLY AND RICHARD WHITTINGTON-EGAN. Molly and Richard were both contributors to the Grey House Books publication 'Who Was Jack the Ripper? A Collection of Present-Day Theories and Observations'. A review copy with tipped-in slip to bep. F. in F. protected dw.
