I found this listing of the Globe Detective Series published in the 1880s. No 14. will be of interest! Does anyone know of any copies survive?

GLOBE DETECTIVE SERIES * Rand McNally Publishing Co. Publishing imprint varies: * Eagle Publishing Co. on later numbers. Nos. 1-20; Dec. 1887July 1889. Monthly publication. Size: 5 7 inches, 250 pages. $4 per year, no individual price. Cover varies: Color cover or plain gray with oval illustration at bottom left. Authors include Hawkshaw, * Charles Morris, and Dr. N. T. Oliver. Primarily *detective and crime novels, some purporting to be accounts of real cases. No. 14 is "The Whitechapel Mystery; or, Jack the Ripper," one of the earliest accounts of the famous serial murder case.

Listing found in The Dime Novel Companion: A Source Book by J. Randolph Cox

In the same book as above found this listing which mentions a JTR publication I had not seen mentioned before:

PINKERTON, ALLEN F. Pseudonym for *detective and mystery stories published in * Laird and Lee's * Pinkerton Detective Series and * Ogilvie* Shield Detective Series. Among the titles signed by this name are Dyke Darrel, the Railroad Detective; or, The Crime of the Midnight Express (nd) and The Whitechapel Murders; or, An American Detective in London (nd).

Hi Chris -

Both these items have been recently reprinted - the N.T. Oliver by Dave Froggatt, and the Pinkerton piece by myself via the R.P.S.. (I've still got a few copies of the Pinkerton left if anyone's interested... :-) )

There are many period Ripper dime novels that have only recently been re-discovered... some of them are viewable at: http://casebook.org/ripper_media/rps.html
