The pages of The Diary of Jack the Ripper reveal the unimaginable—that more than a century ago, the legendary serial killer at work in London’s Whitechapel kept a record of his bestial mutilations of women. The writer of the horrific journal is James Maybrick, a depraved, drug-taking, womanizing, 49-year-old Liverpool cotton merchant with a history of domestic violence. In this analysis of his diary, investigative author Shirley Harrison explains all about the origins of the text and the rigorous scientific analysis it has endured while revealing startling new information about Maybrick's shadowy background. This evidence, along with a chilling confession scratched into a watch—"I am Jack. J Maybrick," provide powerful justification that Maybrick was Jack the Ripper. The diary itself is reproduced in full, so that readers can judge whether these are the deeply distributing words of Jack the Ripper himself, reaching out from across the abyss of more than a century.

Have you ever wondered where Jack the Ripper came from? What were his real motives, what prompted those notorious deaths? Veronica Roper wondered the same as strange things began to happen in the house she inherited in Whitechapel, England, known by the locals as ""Ripper Remains."" Inside the house she finds a diary, written by a long-lost ancestor detailing her intimate association with Jack the Ripper. For while Jack's body may have passed on over a century ago, his spirit is alive and well-and in search of a new host. But is it Jack she truly needs to fear, or her newly acquired husband, Weston, who has a shady past, a suspiciously large income and who never discusses what he does for a living?

The Diary of Jack the Ripper, which came to light in 1991, revealed the identity of the world's most notorious serial killer. At the time it was widely believed to have been a hoax, yet, incredibly, not one person has managed to prove how it was forged or by whom. This, argues Paul Feldman, is because the diary was genuine. Discover how the largest and most detailed investigation on the subject ever to be undertaken led the author through the smokescreen of an official cover-up, via the Royals and the Masons, to the true provenance of the Diary, Jack the Ripper's watch and, ultimately, his identity.

Bringing together ground-breaking forensic discoveries - including vital DNA evidence - and gripping historical detective work, Naming Jack the Ripper constructs the first truly convincing case for identifying the world's most notorious serial killer. In 2007, businessman Russell Edwards bought a shawl believed to have been left beside the body of the fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes. He knew that, if genuine, the shawl would be the only piece of crime scene evidence still in existence. It was the start of an extraordinary seven-year quest for Russell as he sought to authenticate the shawl and learn its secrets. He had no idea that this journey would take him so far. After undergoing extensive forensic testing by one of the country's top scientists, the shawl was not only shown to be genuine, and stained with Catherine Eddowes' blood, but in a massive breakthrough the killer's DNA was also discovered - DNA that would allow Russell to finally put a name to Jack the Ripper . . .

Will the rare autographed baseball your great-uncle gave you put your children through college? Is your grandmother’s chest of drawers really a seventeenth-century antique, or merely a reproduction? A leader in forgery detection and forensic investigation, Joe Nickell reveals his secrets to detecting artifacts items in Real or Fake: Studies in Authentication. Detailing how the pros determine whether an Abraham Lincoln signature is forged or if a photograph of Emily Dickinson is genuine, Nickell provides the essential tools necessary to identify counterfeits. In this general introduction to the principles of authentication, Nickell provides readers with step-by-step explanations of the science used to detect falsified documents, photographs, and other objects. Illustrating methods used on hit shows such as Antiques Roadshow and History Detectives, Nickell recommends that aspiring investigators employ a comprehensive approach to identifying imitations. One should consider the object’s provenance (the origin or derivation of an artifact), content (clues in the scene or item depicted), and material composition (what artifacts are made of), as well as the results of scientific analyses, including radiographic, spectroscopic, microscopic, and microchemical tests. Including fascinating cases drawn from Nickell’s illustrious career, Real or Fake combines historical and scientific investigations to reveal reproductions and genuine objects. Nickell explains the warning signs of forgery, such as patching and unnatural pen lifts; chronicles the evolution of writing instruments, inks, and papers; shows readers how to date photographs, papers, and other materials; and traces the development of photographic processes since the mid-nineteenth century. Lavishly illustrated with examples of replicas and authentic objects inspected by Nickell, Real or Fake includes case studies of alleged artifacts including Jack the Ripper’s diary, a draft of the Gettysburg Address, notes by Charles Dickens, Jefferson Davis’s musket, and debris from the Titanic.
