Sherlock Holmes's beloved detective stories all have their origin in notes taken by Holmes's friend and biographer, Dr. John Watson. Now, fans can peek at this precious preliminary material, from letters to newspaper articles. The scrapbook includes Watson's sketches of the paw prints discovered near the body of Sir Charles Baskerville; the address label from the gruesome parcel sent to Susan Cushing in “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box”; and Holmes's final, heartrending letter to Watson before his violent struggle with Moriarty in “The Final Problem.” All of the items are reproduced as genuine historical artifacts, complete with tears, stains, folds, and handwritten annotations—and 18 of them are in special “evidence” bags on the page, so you can remove them for a close-up look.
 Endorsed by the Conan Doyle estate!

Book Description Carlton Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Sherlock Holmes is undoubtedly the most famous detective in the world. His adventures have been portrayed in fourteen different TV series and twenty different TV movies as well as around 600 Holmes-related radio programs. He has been inducted as an honorary fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the only fictional character ever to achieve such distinction. In the UK, a national computer database used by the police is called HOLMES - Home Office Large Major Enquiry System. In short, everyone knows that Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective who never lived, but his fictional adventures have held us in thrall for over 120 years. The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes is written, just as most of his adventures, by his trusty friend Dr John H Watson. These are the notes on which Watson based his later, more elaborate accounts of Holmes investigations. They take the form of a scrapbook containing letters, sketches, newspaper articles and other items sometimes mentioned in the more familiar forms of these stories, but often neglected. Here you will find Watson s sketches of the paw prints discovered near the body of Sir Charles Baskerville, the address label from the gruesome parcel that was sent to Susan Cushing in The Adventure of the Cardboard Box , Sherlock Holmes final, heartrending letter to Watson before his violent struggle with Moriarty in The Final Problem , as well as many other fascinating documents. All of the items are reproduced as genuine historical artifacts, with tears, stains, folds and handwritten annotations by Watson. Eighteen of these items are held in special evidence bags on the page, to be removed for easy study by the reader. Painstakingly researched, beautifully designed and packaged, and rich in period detail, this is a book that brings the world of 221b Baker Street vividly to life. It is a volume that no Sherlock Holmes fan will want to be without. Seller Inventory # AA89780233002897
