  • Where can I read all the Ripper books?

    I am interested in Klosowski and want to read about him in a lot of different books.

    I've looked online and it would be incredibly expensive to buy them all, just to read (a bit of) them once. Even secondhand - especially those by Mr Gordon, who specialises in Klosowski, they are going for around 30 each!

    Is there anywhere apart from the BL that I could visit and get access to a bundle of them at once?

    Perhaps there is even a member who has them all and lives in Sussex who would let me come and look at them for a day? Happy to pay a fee of course!

    Surely any local library would obtain them for you. In the UK there is (or used to be) a very good inter-library loan service, whereby your local library can obtain books from anywhere in the country.

      Best wishes,

        Thanks Stephen

        I still have a lot to sell - up to a thousand. You name it - I have probably got it!

        And my prices are below the on-line prices.

            Helena,

            Unfortunately, it's no longer possible to buy some of the leading texts in our subject unless you're willing to lay out a fair bit of cash. If you only want to read them, as Phil H says, inter-library loan is an excellent option and you should investigate it at your local library. But, as Steve says, Coral is offering an excellent collection at very reasonable prices. If you intend to become a collector, I'd snap some of them up were I you.
