    How
    Ill have to bow to your knowledge on that one :-)
    The info I included in my first post does say:

    [Jack The Ripper, mysterious women killer in London].
    Džek Trbosek, tajanstveni ubilac Ženskinja u Londonu
    (in cirillyc)

    which confirms the Cyrillic point you made.
    Wiki has this to say:
    The Cyrillic alphabet is seen as being more traditional, and has official status in Serbia (designated in the Constitution as the "official script", compared to Serbian Latin's status of "script in official use" designated by a lower-level act), Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro (besides Latin script). During the course of the 20th century the Latin alphabet has become more frequently used, especially in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro.
    The Serbian Cyrillic alphabet was one of the two official scripts used to write the Serbo-Croatian language in Yugoslavia since its inception in 1918, despite attempts by King Alexander I to abolish the Cyrillic version

    Chris:

    After looking at the link, I noticed something a little odd.

    If the book was translated into Serbian, then check out this page because its in Cyrillic. I don't think Serbs write in Cyrillic, Russians do. Serbs write in Latin.

    Hi How
    I am intrigued to say the least
    10 volumes???
    I have done a quick tally and the whole work is 3,335 pages with 43 illustrations.
    I wonder what on earth could fill that much!

    What a nice find, Chris
    Džek Trbosek is Jack the Ripper in Serbian.

    I'm going to take a gander at it on the link you posted.
