    I must admit I find the illustrations puzzling - one of them appears to show either a bearded lady or a man in woman's clothes (suspect? detective?)
    I'll see if I can post it

    Is that one illustration suggesting the Ripper entered 13 Millers Court via the fireplace?

    And the one with the man attacking the woman with a sword may apply to a torso murder

    Very interesting nonetheless

    Hi Chris,

    The 1918 death is guessed isnt it?

    Ive read elsewhere that he was alive in the 1920s but no definite date of death.

    Hi Monty
    Thanks for that info
    According to
    http://trivialitas.tr.ohost.de/aka/a_w.htm#walterpa
    the dates of Guido von Fels (apparently the correct form) aka Paul Walter were 1859 to 1918, so this work (advertised as a first edition published in the 1920s) must have bee posthumous

    Hi guys
    Thanks for the feedback and additional info.
    The classification on the Ebay page reads:
    Item specifics - Antiquarian/Collectible Books
    Binding: Hardcover
    Special Attributes: 1st Edition, Illustrated
    Subject: Literature & Fiction
    Printing Year: --
    Topic: Drama
    Origin: European

    "Topic: Drama" would suggest this is a play but 10 volumes? Over 3000 pages? I just hope there was an interval!!!

    Given the length of this work, I wonder if it's a translation of James Middleton's Jack, O Estripador: Grande Romance de Actualidade, Illustrado com Gravuras (1889) fictional five volume, 2000+page book.

    I can't image this Serbian published work being anything other than fictional at ten volumes.

    Cheers,

    Robert

    Hello Chris, How,

    I work with a few people that can translate both types of languages.. but to be on the safe side, I have sent a few questions to the seller as well-

    Hello there,

    Just a couple of questions, I would be most obliged if you could answer the following:-

    Can you please confirm that all 10 volumes refer entirely to the subject of "Jack the Ripper"?

    Would you please give a brief summary of the contents, for clarity as to the type of work this is? (Non-fiction/direct quotes from involved persons in the case/fiction?

    If this does not recieve any bids, will you consider an offer below the stated asking price?

    best wishes

    I will try to get one of my colleagues to take a look at it today, and see what he thinks this is all about.

    best wishes

    Phil

    It would be hilarious if this book provided some significant new information.

    And wouldn't it be a hoot if it contained some hitherto unknown photographs?

    Good find, Chris.

    Good one Chris.
    So the Serbs did use Cyrillic back when this book was written.
    Thanks for that amigo.

    Which will be a task for the person who purchases it. They've got to tangle with this:
