A charming and exquisite recreation of the miniature Sherlock Holmes story from the library of Queen Mary's famous Dolls' House, on display at Windsor Castle. This lavish cloth-bound gift edition faithfully recreates in beautiful detail the Sherlock Holmes story Arthur Conan Doyle wrote especially for the Library of Queen Mary's Dolls' House in 1922. In this classic story, Watson tries to mimic Holmes's mastery of the art of deduction with very funny results, making this a book for both adults and children to delight in. Alongside the miniature book, which measures just 38.5 x 30 mm, the edition also contains an informative booklet with a transcript of the story and information about the Dolls' House. Queen Mary's Dolls' House is the largest and most famous of its kind in the world, and has a library containing miniature works by all the major writers and artists of the day.
