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.
