In cooperation with the Lilly Library of Indiana University, the BSI presents 19 unpublished illustrations of the Sherlock Holmes stories made by Gilbert Keith (G. K.) Chesterton (1874–1936), the great English artist, poet, theologian, journalist, critic, essayist, author, and creator of “Father Brown.” Commissioned for a never-published edition of the Canon, the illustrations lay for years virtually unknown in the Lilly Library Collection. Edited and introduced by Steven Doyle, BSI, the volume includes appreciations of Chesterton by Dale Ahlquist and Pasquale Accardo, BSI, an essay on the illustrations by Scott Bond, BSI, and Chesterton’s own splendid essays on Holmes and detective fiction.
