Blue cloth with silver spine titles, 14 by 21.2 cm, vii 320 pp., illus. Very good with bumping and wear at the extremities and some small splits at the head of the spine. A bound volume of all four issues of The Police Journal from 1951. Each issue contains interesting arrests and case reports, judicial verdicts, and articles on handling evidence, human resource-type discussions, accidents, investigation techniques, the latest equipment, articles on the burgeoning field of scientific investigation, fingerprinting, and well-written murder reposts that true crime junkies will love – sometimes with photos. This volume includes some notes on the examination of a human skeleton found off the Essex Coast and “Nature Study as a Scientific Aid” and its relation to the 1946 rape case against Peter Thomas Manuel.
