On offer is a super early 20th Century manuscript relic of police and detective work being a remarkable journal once owned by, we assume a detective, who kept an inexpensive flip style notebook for the purpose of keeping mug shots and personal details of known and wanted criminals and fugitives. Murderers, break and enter perpetrators, armed robbers, kidnappers and felons of every known stripe are detailed. Forty six pages, each with four photographs and accompanying details including height, weight, scars, hair and eye color, tattoos and other distinguishing marks, the crimes they are wanted for, known associates +++. Historians and researchers and collectors of early policing methods will find a unique treasure in this diligent, unidentified officer's detailed notebook. While the notebook has information as o place or the author's name we believe this was compiled between 1910 - 1920 and is related to the Toronto Ontario area as this came from a Toronto estate. The notebook is in rough shape with tears to the covers, chips and small tears throughout but all legible and overall Fair.
