The ultimate Jack the Ripper companion : an illustrated encyclopedia by Keith Skinner( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At last, the true story of Jack the Ripper - a copiously illustrated and officially documented reconstruction of the infamous Whitechapel Murders. This singular encyclopedic work offers the ultimate in Ripper research. Solidly researched and profusely illustrated, collated from all the known official records and supplemented by contemporary press reports, it presents for the first time, in one volume, a prime-source reference book on the eleven shocking prostitute murders that took place in the East End of London between 1888 and 1891. While there is no doubt that the Whitechapel Murders, as they were classified by Scotland Yard, were committed by more than one person, no one knows how many of the killings can be attributed to a single culprit. More than one murderer wore the guise of Jack the Ripper, and certain identities of all to this day remain unknown. Divorcing the facts of the Ripper case from the myths that have proliferated in myriad books and film, this painstakingly compiled sourcebook offers a factual, documented narrative of the entire series of crimes, their forensic evidence, the official suspects and possible accomplices, police reports, and inquests. Any historian or crime fan researching the world's most notorious serial murders as well as general readers interested in the true facts of the case, will find this book as invaluable as it is affordable

Ripper's murderous spree, Inspector John George Littlechild, then retired, laments in his fateful letter: "to my mind a very likely [suspect] ... was an American quack named Francis Tumblety ... his feelings toward women were remarkable and bitter in the extreme."

The Littlechild letter, printed in this book

Executioner : the chronicles of James Berry, Victorian hangman by Stewart P Evans( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Berry, a pious Yorkshireman, was Britain's hangman during the latter half of Queen Victoria's reign, and throughout the period of the Whitechapel murders. A man of strange contradictions - capable of cold, callous detachment but so affected by his job that he was often unable to speak before an execution - Berry was the last hangman able to write freely about his work. Through Berry's experiences, Stewart Evans takes us on a journey into the world of Victorian crime and punishment." "Berry was an ex-policeman who took a genuine interest in his 'victims' - even creating his own 'black museum'. Aiming to be both efficient and merciful he worked to a table of drops of his own creation. Unfortunately, this did not prevent a few horrific incidents. The most notable was the execution of Robert Goodale who was decapitated by the force of the drop. In contrast, in the famous case of John Lee, Berry was unable to open the gallows trap. After three attempts - during which the gallows trap worked perfectly when Lee was removed - Lee was reprieved." "During his eight years as hangman, Berry executed over 130 men and women - and even claimed to have hanged Jack the Ripper. He enjoyed publicity and toured the country talking of his experiences and showing lantern slides of grim prison scenes and executions. Yet in later life this contradictory character suffered from depression and became almost suicidal." "Executioner is a biography which offers insight into the world of the public executioner. It will appeal to all those interested in crime and punishment in the Victorian era."--BOOK JACKET
