8vo, XXX, 472pp. Hardcover with black publisher’s cloth and gilt titles on a firm spine, with non price-clipped pictorial d/w overall in fine condition, text is in a pristine state as well. Exhaustively researched and elegantly written, this book sets aside many myths and misconceptions to present a vivid portrait of the man behind “the legend of Baker Street”, with particular emphasis on the psychic crusade that dominated the final years. Presented with rare panache, this is as entertaining as any of Holmes detective stories.
