Waters: Early Detective Casebook Fiction

These stories were first published anonymously in “Chambers Magazine” between 1849 and 1853 under a general heading of “Recollections Of A Police Officer”.

The first book collection was a pirated U.S. edition published in 1852 as “ The Recollections Of A Policeman”. The author was listed as “Waters” (The name of the investigating officer in the stories) but the author was really William Russell a well known London journalist of the time.

The first English edition of the collected stories was published in 1856 under the title “Recollections Of A Detective Police Officer”.

This text is from the 1860 American edition of "Recollections of a Policeman" published in Boston by Thayer and Eldridge . It leaves out three of the stories by Waters and replaces them with some contemporary criminous journalistic pieces by Charles Dickens.

As yet I haven't even posted this to Project Gutenberg.

Enjoy

This looks very interesting, Bev. Do you plan on making a .prc (mobi) version?
