SOLD: 1888 JACK THE RIPPER illustrated / bound news articles

Recently sold is an interesting and highly desirable (by Ripperologists) volume containing five different (now famous) articles regarding the gruesome Whitechapel murders of August - November 1888, now known by the title "JACK THE RIPPER"! The volume contains full articles of the British weekly publication of "Punch - or the London Charivari", a humerous and satirical magazine published from 1841 to 1992. Contains five highly detail and gruesomely honest illustrations - many full page.

Book details:
London: Published at the Office, 85 Fleet Street. Volume 95, contains July 7 - December 29, 1888. Hardcover, measures 8-1/2" x 11" tall. 312 pp. Bluish-grey boards w/ 1/4 black leather spine. Leather spine chipped, gilt title missing; front cover loose, back cover detached but present (unfortunately it detached when I was writing this). Corners worn. Interior contents tight and clean; illustrations crisp and bright.
