    https://www.gutenberg.org/browse/authors/s

    Im sure that most posters are aware of The Gutenberg Project. A staggering amount of books online all free. Lots of rare ones. Lots of incredibly obscure ones. But also loads of classics.

    As far as a Ripper connection, however peripheral, I found books by George R Sims, WT Stead, Henry Mayhew, Sidney And Beatrice Webb.

    Well worth a look.
    Regards

      I'd say that they were pretty much essential reading, Herlock. I know Mayhew was writing 3 or 4 decades before the Ripper murders, but something tells me things hadn't changed all that much, especially among the poorer classes.

        Hello Barn,

        Its great for when you search the bibliography of a book and spot one of potential interest then spot it on sale for £70 !! I plan to have a good dig around at the weekend.
        Regards

          Very true Sam. I just downloaded How Te Poor Live by Sims.

            It's just not the same thing as getting a complimentary copy from an author.

              True Scott but I don’t think I’m likely to get a signed copy of Sims book unfortunately.
