Jack the Ripper in the Provinces: The English Provincial Press Reporting of the Whitechapel Murders
Stawell Heard
Self published, 100 copies only. 2005. Booklet, illus. 37pp.

Casebook Review:

Another examination of the press coverage surrounding the Ripper case, this time in the areas outside of London. Heard's careful study of the provincial press has uncovered a number of previously unknown reports, many of which are reprinted here in part or in full. Examination is also made of the press in general and Victorian crime reporting in particular.

Well written and certainly worth a read. Recommended for the serious student of the case, and those particularly interested in the contemporary press coverage.
