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

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

    Yeah Herlock, it's a big lucky bag for grown ups.

    Great site just to have a wander round.
    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.

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

    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.

    Well worth a look.
