About this Item: St Martin's, 1996. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. New York, 1996, St Martin's press, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 8 1/2, VG/VG condition, 337 pages. -----------It has long been believed that when Cox & Company (London) was destroyed in a World War II bombing raid, with it was also destroyed the legendary tin dispatch-box of Dr. Watson. This box, containing notes on dozens of Sherlock Holmes's adventures never released to the public, is perhaps the Holy Grail for Holmesian scholars and fans. Now the miraculous truth can be told—the last casebooks of Sherlock Holmes have survived!.When Watson died intestate, the box found its way into the hands of renowned Philadelphia book collector Mr. R. To his dismay, the collector discovered that the box contained primarily Watson's rough notes, so he set about commissioning writers to complete them for his own amusement. After Mr. R.'s death, it was discovered through records and text analysis that the ghostwriters who completed the stories are among the most famous names in literature.Here, available to the public for the first time, are fifteen legendary Holmes tales as written by Ernest Hemingway (Morgan Llywelyn), Ellery Queen (Edward D. Hoch), W Somerset Maugham (Henry Slesar), H. P Lovecraft (Paula Volsky), Mickey Spillane (William L. DeAndrea), J. Thorne Smith (Mike Resnick), Jack Kerouac (Richard A. Lupoff), Edgar Rice Burroughs (Craig Shaw Gardner), and Rex Stout (Marvin Kaye), among others. All in all, it is a triumph of scholarship, a boon to literature, and a treasure trove sure to delight everyone whose heart belongs to Baker Street. Seller Inventory # 35211
