Book is designed to look like Dr. Watson's 100 year-old scrapbook of case files. You have newspaper clippings, telegrams, hand-written notes, and photographs bound into a book which is held together by a red ribbon. The paper was pre-yellowed to look old (it looks even yellower after 30 years). Dr. Watson supposedly assembled it: It was supposed to look beaten-up and amateurish (even "Like New" copies look this way, somewhat confusing). Some came with four glassine envelopes containing actual clues: a gold wedding ring, a poison pill (eek!), and two calling cards (make sure your copy has all clues intact).
