Elementary my dear Watson!
“From the first day I met her, she was the only woman to me. Every day of that voyage I loved her more, and many a time since have I kneeled down in the darkness of the night watch and kissed the deck of that ship because I knew her dear feet had trod it. She was never engaged to me. She treated me as fairly as ever a woman treated a man. I have no complaint to make. It was all love on my side, and all good comradeship and friendship on hers. When we parted she was a free woman, but I could never again be a free man.”
― Arthur Conan Doyle, The Return of Sherlock Holmes
I simply couldn't leave London without purchasing a G&H namesake and what better way than our very own vintage edition of Sherlock Holmes! Inscribed:
'1967 To Pop love Moira .x. Hope you will enjoy reading it!'
Written in such a lovely child-like handwriting I can imagine a daughter giving it to her father as a present. Sadly not a first edition but an excellent copy of a later one, The Return of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, printed in Great Britain by Butler & Tanner Ltd., Frome and London. What better way to spend your time than with Sherlock and Watson on their many adventures. The game is afoot, as they say!
