The book in question is The Sherlock Holmes Miscellany by Roger Johnson and Jean Upton.
Official details as follows:
“MAY I INTRODUCE YOU TO MR SHERLOCK HOLMES?”*
At London’s famous Sherlock Holmes pub on Monday the 16th May you can meet the authors of an award-winning book about the great detective.
Between 2.00pm and 4.00pm Roger Johnson & Jean Upton will be signing copies of The Sherlock Holmes Miscellany, which has been praised by reviewers in Britain and around the world.
· Michael Cox, producer of the classic TV series starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes, says: “This is the best introduction to Sherlock Holmes that I know and it also serves as a valuable work of reference.”
· The Baker Street Journal says: “This work belongs in the hands of every Sherlockian who has had to explain the lure of Baker Street.”
· Crime writer Mike Ripley says: “Roger Johnson and Jean Upton are both well-known scholars and aficionados of everything to do with The Great Detective, as well as being members of the Sherlock Holmes Society, the Baker Street Irregulars and the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes. I am therefore quite willing to believe they know exactly what they are talking about and to admit they know far more than I ever did about Sherlock Holmes – up until I read their marvellous book, that is. Now, I am a positive mine of fascinating facts.”
For more than twenty years Roger Johnson and Jean Upton have acted as curators of the 221B Baker Street study at the Sherlock Holmes, maintaining a connection between the pub and the Sherlock Holmes Society of London that began more than sixty years ago.
The Sherlock Holmes is at 10-11 Northumberland Street, WC2N 5DB. For more information call 020 7930 2644, or see http://www.sherlockholmes-stjames.co.uk/
