Notes

Special edition for subscribers; originally published in 1898 in two volumes without illustrations. Griffiths was known for his lurid tales of criminality. Some of the chapters included are "The Penge Case", "Illicit Diamond Buying", "A Mysterious Murder" and "The Stepney Murder". Rackham's drawings first appeared in magazine form, in several parts, bound in wrappers, in 1901 and 1902. A few of these drawings had previously appeared in Cassell's Magazine in 1896.
