The Man Who Never Lived and Will Never Die The Museum of London Exhibition
Nicholas Utechin and Catherine Cooke
Now, 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.
96 pages, 9.75" x 7.5" paperback, April 2015 Profusely illustrated with color plates
