Briljanta grāmata 19. gadsimta Londonas un Šerloka Holmsa cienītājiem! Aizraujošas fotogrāfijas no 19. gs Londonas dzīves, Konana - Doila mājvietas, Holmsa atainojums grāmatās, teātrī, filmās; raksti, vēstures liecības u.c. Viens no interesantākajiem man likās autentiskais "Strand" 1892. gada raksts "Diena ar Konanu Doilu" ar rakstnieka mājvietas un ģimenes foto, kā arī doktora Džozefa Bella vēstule par to, kā viņš vērtē savu saistību - sevi kā Šerloka Holmsa prototipu.

Visumā - īsta dārgumu krāt

I was fortunate enough to see the Sherlock Holmes Exhibition at the Museum of London in October 2014. It was a fantastic experience and one I'll always treasure. This book, the official companion to the exhibition, is filled with excellent essays, including some on the histories of both Sherlock Holmes and London and the many stage/screen/book adaptations over the years. If you love Sherlock Holmes and London, you will love this book.

Picked this book up in an Oxfam book shop when I was on holiday in Bristol, super interesting read! Amazing pictures from the original Sherlock Holmes stories published in the Strand Magazine.
