Nicholas Utechin et Catherine Cooke ont publié le catalogue de l'exposition Sherlock Holmes qui vient de se terminer au Museum of London. 

96 pages sur papier glacé et illustrées en couleurs. 

 L'exemplaire vendu fait partie de la première édition 

 au tirage limité à 300 exemplaires. 

For the first time, a catalogue is available for the Museum of London's 2014-15 groundbreaking exhibition

Not since the famous 1951 Festival of Britain has an event so captured the essence of Sherlock Holmes and London.


Compiled by Nicholas Utechin and Catherine Cooke, with a foreword by Alex Werner, the Exhibition's curator, this volume provides an illustrated record of the Exhibition and the "wonderful stuff of Sherlockian collecting fantasy."


Highlights include the two most important sheets regarding the birth of Sherlock Holmes, three original Holmes manuscripts, two Beeton's Christmas Annuals, eight Sidney Paget original drawings and one by Frederick Dorr Steele.


Accompanying the illustrations are the compilers' comments, as well as selected Museum of London captions and contributions by Glen Miranker and Constantine Rossakis. 


The Museum of London’s magnificent exhibition ‘SHERLOCK HOLMES – THE MAN WHO NEVER LIVED AND WILL NEVER DIE’ may have closed, but you now have an opportunity to buy a specially compiled Catalogue as a permanent keepsake.


A first edition of 300 copies has been published by The Quartering Press, an imprint of The Baker Street Irregulars Press.


It contains a Foreword by the exhibition’s curator, Alex Werner, and contributions from two of the leading lenders of priceless exhibits – Glen Miranker and Constantine Rossakis.


A glossy 10ins x 7 ½ ins paperback (96 pages), it is illustrated throughout in full colour.  


It is an important record of a very important exhibition – the like of which Sherlockians may never see again.
