Description


Available post-free in the UK from the publisher's website, www.lifeisamazing.co.uk.When in 1887 Beeton's Christmas Annual included a story about a brilliant consulting detective written by an obscure doctor living in Southsea, Portsmouth, nobody could have predicted the massive influence Sherlock Holmes would have on the world of detective fiction. Perhaps that's why the cheap book bound in fragile paper wraps was discarded by so many Victorian households after the Christmas season was over. Famously, there are just 34 copies still in existence, of which 11 are complete, making the prospect of owning an original virtually impossible for the Sherlock Holmes collector. Using the original artwork, this unlimited edition contains all the pages of the original edition. Including the original adverts and the accompanying works, this book is a fascinating historical document - and an affordable choice for the lover of all things Sherlock.
