About the Book

As Spring-Heeled Jack made his final "canonical" appearance in Liverpool in 1904, 12 issues of a serial novel was published by the Aldine Newspaper Company.Set just before Britain engages in the Napoleonic wars, celebrated officer Bertram Wraydon, is framed for spying for the enemy. He escapes execution and flees into hiding, but, in doing so, he forfeits his estates to his half-brother, Hubert Sedgefield. Wraydon attempts to reclaim his lost heritage, and, to do so, he is assisted by the mysterious figure known as Spring-Heeled Jack. As Wraydon is forced deeper into the shadowy underworld of espionage and treason, Spring-Heeled Jack confronts each of Wraydon's adversaries to restore his good name. But there is a line between Justice and Law that Spring-Heeled Jack is willing to cross.All of the collections of this rare serial novel are incomplete, however, the missing issue has been located and included for this volume, which also features a new introduction by J.S Mackley.

The Spring-Heeled Jack Library

The objective of the Spring-Heeled Jack library has been to make accessible all the stories and serials featuring the character of Spring-Heeled Jack to show how he has been used or adapted over the years. For some of the volumes, the British Library lacks an issue in the series and these have kindly been provided by libraries which often only had the single issue in their collections. These volumes have been edited and have an introductory essay to each volume, placing the publication in their literary and historical context. They are not OCR, but are edited and annotated with an introductory essay by J.S. Mackley.

The seven volumes (8 books) are:

Volume 1 Spring Heel'd Jack: The Terror of London (1863) (Complete for the first time)
Volume 2 Spring Heeled Jack: The Terror of London (1886) (2 Books)
Volume 3 Spring-Heeled Jack: Articles and Short fiction (1838‒1897)
Volume 4 Spring-Heeled Jack: The Human Bat (1899-1901)
Volume 5 Dandy Dick, or The King's Highway (1900-1901)
Volume 6 Spring-Heeled Jack: Man or Fiend (1904) (Complete for the first time)
Volume 7 The Winged Man; or 'Twixt Midnight and Dawn (1913)
