alphabetically by author

 

 

 

Listed below is my current stock in this subject, sorted in alphabetical order, by author. Please note that it is difficult to categorize some titles, which overlap different subjects; in these cases, the easiest procedure would be use the search box, which covers my entire stock. However, if searching for a particular title on this page only, the simplest method is to use "Control-F" to bring up the "Find" dialogue on screen. I have described the books as accurately as possible but will of course accept returns if a particular item is inadvertently not as described.

Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen set himself up in the then fashionable business of homeopathy. His wife, a music-hall variety performer called Belle Elmore, did her best with her limited stage talents. They lived among the suburban villas of North London, renting a house at 39 Hilldrop Crescent. They were a couple, much happier in company than they were with each other. After supper on 31 January 1910, their friends went home and Crippen killed Belle with poison and dismembered her body and buried some of her remains beneath the brick floor of the coal cellar. Crippen never admitted killing his wife and took the secrets of the crime with him when he was hanged, following his conviction for murder. It is assumed that Crippen killed for the love of his mistress, his secretary Ethel le Neve. They began living together as man and wife, but under intense suspicion they ran off to Europe disguised as father and son and boarded an ocean liner, the SS Montrose, to Canada. The story was now a national scandal and the liner's captain saw through their disguise, recognising Crippen and Ethel from their published photographs. Using the newly installed Marconi wireless telegraph he sent messages back to Scotland Yard. The chase - indeed everything about the murder and its cast of characters - was reported in fine detail, in Britain, in America and the rest of the western world. Crippen was arrested on deck and with Ethel was brought back to England for trial. Ethel was accused of being an accessory to murder, but was acquitted. David James Smith has investigated afresh this celebrated murder case, and his researches have uncovered unexpected and startling information about 'Chamber of Horrors' stalwart Dr Crippen, Belle and Ethel." — Stock No. 6360 — £28.00

"R.101 The Airship Disaster, 1930" was first published by HMSO as Cmd. 3825 (1931). "The Munich Air Crash, 1958" was first published by HMSO as CAP 153 (1959), CAP 167 (1960) and CAP 318 (1969). From the rear-cover: "Three of the most tragic journeys the 20th century ever witnessed are combined here in one unique volume. The story of The Loss of the Titanic is so well known that it hardly needs introduction. But so many myths now surround the ship that it is sometimes hard to discover the truth. The official inquiry presented here is the same report that was presented to the government in 1912. It also includes a reappraisal of the evidence relating to the SS California, the ship that failed to come to the rescue of the Titanic on that fateful night. R.101: The Airship Disaster. Little is known today of airship travel, yet, in its heyday, the R.101 was considered as glamorous as the Titanic. Sadly the R.101's ultimate fate was equally tragic, as after only seven hours into her maiden voyage to India she lay shattered on a hillside in France, with the loss of 46 lives. The official inquiry investigates the reasons why it all went disastrously wrong. The Munich Air Crash 1958: The loss of eight key players in the Manchester United football team, plus 30 other people on board the BEA aircraft at Munich Airport, stunned the world. Presented here for the first time in popular format is the German inquiry into the causes of the crash, plus the British inquiry to consider whether the captain was in any way to blame." — Stock No. 5992 — £20.00
