Publication: Hyperion, 1993, New York
First U.S. edition. Fine in dust jacket. Is the diary real? Maybe, and then again maybe not. The diary's alleged author is James Maybrick, a Liverpool cotton merchant who began his ghastly reign of terror as the infamous Ripper after discovering that his wife was unfaithful. The book is divided into three sections: a lengthy explanation of the case; photographs of the original handwritten entries and a typed transcript of the diary's text; and a critical report on the dating of the diary by document specialist Kenneth Rendell.
