Product Description
Edward Gorey: Neglected Murderesses Boxed Notecard Assortment
Presented with tongue firmly in cheek, Neglected Murderesses features delightfully wicked specimens of “the fairer sex” whose homicidal acts have faded into obscurity, including bowler-turned-basher Miss Q. P. Urkheimer and crochet-hook skewerer Mrs. Daisy Sallow.

If not for the sleuthing of Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000), whose fearless rehabilitation of better-known murderers such as Dracula, the Wuggly Ump, and the malfeasants presented in PBS’s Mystery! earned the admiration of countless law-abiding citizens, we might have gone to our graves without a proper appreciation of the important part women have played in the history of homicide.

More Neglected Murderesses are included in Gorey’s deliciously disturbing The Betrayed Confidence Revisited (Pomegranate, 2014).

Contains 5 each of the following images:
Mrs. Daisy Sallow eviscerated her daughter-in-law with a No. 7 hook, afterwards crocheting, over the course of three evenings, her shroud in a snowflake pattern (1921).
Miss Q. P. Urkheimer brained her fiancé after failing to pick up an easy spare at Glover’s Lanes, Poxville, Kansas, 1936.
Miss Emily Toastwater smothered her father after evening prayers, London S.W.7 (1916).
Natasha Batti-Loupstein pulverized a paste necklace and sprinkled it over a tray of canapés, Villa Libellule, Nice, 1923.
