Excerpt from Sea Monsters Unmasked In treating of the so-called sea-serpent, I have been anticipated by many able writers. Mr. Gosse, in his delightful book, 'the Romance of Natural History, ' published in 1862, devoted a chapter to it and numerous articles concerning it have appeared in various papers and periodicals.

Excerpt from Sea Fables Explained The little book 'sea Monsters Unmasked, ' recently issued as one Of the Handbooks in connection with the Great International Fisheries Exhibition has met with SO favourable a reception, that I have been honoured by the request to continue the subject, and to treat also Of some of the Fables of the Sea, which once were universally believed, and even now are not utterly extinct. The topic is not here exhausted. Other sea fables and fallacies might be mentioned and explained; but the amount Of letter-press, and the number of illustrations that can be printed without loss' for the small sun} of one Shilling - the price at which these Handbooks are uniformly published - is necessarily limited. I have, therefore, thought it better to endeavour to make each chapter as complete as possible than to crowd into the space allotted to me a greater variety of subjects less fully and carefully discussed.

Had the Jack the Ripper murders taken place in 1988 not 1888 then our response to them would have been markedly different. Since those dark days in Victorian London we have learnt much about this type of killer: their damaged childhoods, misfit adulthoods and psychopathic alienation from the human race. But can this new knowledge help to solve a mystery that has been eluding generations of policemen and historians? By comparing the crimes of the Ripper with those of other serial killers, Ripper expert William Beadle creates a more extensive psychological profile of the man behind Jack the Ripper than ever before.One suspect who embodied all the dire characteristics was William Henry Bury. Bury moved to the East End of London in 1887. He had a terrible childhood, he was a horsemeat butcher, and he had a violent relationship with his wife. But was Bury the Ripper? Beadle uses his Ripper psychological profile in conjunction with newly unearthed evidence: Bury was out all night on the dates of the murders, and when his wife 'committed suicide' she had been strangled and her body ripped up in the same way as the Ripper's victims. When Bury was executed for the murder of his wife, the killings in the East End stopped. A Scotland Yard detective even conceded to the hangman that he was 'quite satisfied you have hanged Jack the Ripper'.
