8vo, X, 92pp. Hardcover in green cloth boards in excellent condition with a partially price-clipped pictorial d/w in very good condition with mild chipping at all edges and corners, now protected in clear archival covering, text is in pristine condition with the lightest of age tanning on all pages and only a bookshop sticker on front pastedown from the Kitazawa English language bookstore in Tokyo Japan as well as a small oriental design red ink stamp on free rear endpaper and title page. The methods of detection formulated by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle through Sherlock Holmes have been accepted by criminologists everywhere and so this small book is an in-depth account of Conan Doyle’s character that justifies the closest personal association of himself with Holmes. His creator and progenitor has had incomparable achievements that are explored here in some detailed logic. Arguably the best biography of Conan Doyle ever written.
