    Thanks for all the kind words about my book everyone. Monty, you are a gent and a scholar.

    Glad you enjoyed the book (Herr J. is a terrific guy). I didn't go into the history of the Chapman photograph out of respect for the family. Some descendants of the Whitechapel victims do not wish to be bothered by people in the Ripper field. Neal Shelden has always been sensitive to this issue. If I can get the story across faithfully without names I will include it in any future edition.

    Sushka, and others who have previously inquired, I have continued to do research since the 2005 publication of my book. There will be a second edition. I just can't promise a time frame. I have new information, and there is one avenue I need to explore before I can justify a full revision. I am looking at a complete rewrite on this.

    111 is too much. If I didn't own a copy, the book would be too expensive for me!

    Cheers,

    Robert

        Another EBay auction at the moment with a STARTING bid of 250 pounds.

        Robert, surely there is an eager publisher out there interested in that level of interest!!

          Hi Sushka

          Thanks for letting me know about the Ebay auction although it is not a STARTING bid - it is a BUY IT NOW for 250.00.

          My copy is still available.

            Does anyone know the REAL reason why this book has never been republished?

              I wish it would be republished. I've been trying for more than three years to get a copy of this but 100 + is just too much for me ;-(. As for 250 ! that is just plain crazy.

              Stephen...do you know ? would you like to enlighten us ?

              Kind regards

                  Perhaps you should read previous postings - this is what Robert has said -

                  "Sushka, and others who have previously inquired, I have continued to do research since the 2005 publication of my book. There will be a second edition. I just can't promise a time frame. I have new information, and there is one avenue I need to explore before I can justify a full revision. I am looking at a complete rewrite on this."

                    Exactly, Coral. Robert will publish a new edition when he believes he has enough new data to warrant it. Frankly, I don't see how his book could be improved. It's perfect as it is, and one of the most interesting monographs of the last decade. If he does bring out a new edition, however, I will be among the first in line to buy it.

                            Unfortunately, I may be forced to sell my copy, it is signed and inscribed to myself, mentioning Rippercast. If interested, please PM or email me at makhno9 at gmail dot com. I'll entertain any offers (taking the highest) and send you scans. Its pretty much in mint condition. Beware, this is not going for cheap.

                            Thanks

                                For those of us who are Yanks I was able to find out that in the entire U.S. public Library System there is only 1 copy of this book. It is found at the Univeristy of Tennessee in their Rare Books collection.

                                Usually you are able to get books mailed to you from other Libraries but because of where this one is located I'm unaware (doubt) if that is the case.
