Arthur Rose
ISBN: 0 86025 915 3
Format: Hardback
£40.00

A limited edition of 500 copies in a slip case.

The 1923 production starred Eille Norwood (Doyle’s favourite Holmes) and featured Lady Frances, languishing in a Home tended by Doctor and Miss Schlessinger, the latter enamoured of Charles Augustus Milverton, who blackmails Lady Frances with a forged letter purporting to be from her fiancé. Her physician is Doctor Watson, who, with the help of a detective friend, finds that the heiress is being drugged. Meanwhile, John Clay’s gang, controlled by Sebastian Moran, are tunnelling beneath the house where Lady Frances’ fiancé is being held with the aim of robbing a bank. With the help of a dummy and a District Messenger, Holmes traps the criminals.

Spectacularly illustrated with 23 full page photographs of the original West End production and end-papers from the programme: this is a collectors’ piece to treasure.
