4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive visual feast for the amateur Ripperologist, 27 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The London of Jack the Ripper:: Then and Now (Paperback)
This book contains just about every available image pertinent to the case of Jack The Ripper. It also provides thorough details of everything that is known about all of the possible victims. There is no attempt to investigate the crimes or identify the perpetrator; this book is purely a guide to the people and places involved and is an invaluable resource to anyone interested in this subject, from the faintly curious to the most ardent Ripperologist. However, it isn't quite perfect: there are no colour images, despite the fact that some of the archive originals are in colour; all of the images, old and new, are presented in black and white - contrary to any impression the front cover may give and there are no other composites. The book is a little over A5 size, so the images are all fairly small, some especially so and many would probably benefit from some image enhancement. Nonetheless, this is still a fantastic book. [NB: there is one (very special) image that is not included - this can be found in the co-author's [Philip Hutchinson] later book 'The Jack the Ripper location photographs', published in 2009.]
