White Chappell Scarlet Tracings.Uppingham : 1987 Stock Code: 48421
NotesLimited edition of 100 copies, signed by author and artist on the limitation leaf. A roman à clef of the book trade, which blends bibliomystery and psychogeography with Ripperology. Raffish bookdealers in the pursuit of the ultimate Sherlock Holmes rarity collide across time with the final collapse into insanity of Sir William Gull, Queen Victoria's surgeon, "identified" by Stephen Knight in Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution as the knifeman on the Jack the Ripper team.
Octavo, original grey cloth, title in black to the spine. In the acetate jacket, with numbered card tag, in black cloth slipcase.
Frontispiece by Rigby Graham, 3 illustrations to the text, original etching of the frontispiece illustration, signed in pencil and numbered by Graham in end-pocket.
Very good indeed.
