How Watson Learned the Trick

How Watson Learned the Trick

  • Description

    Queen Mary's Dolls' House at Windsor Castle is the largest and most famous dolls' house in the world. It was a gift from the nation to Queen Mary, consort to King George V, and was built by master craftsmen between 1921 and 1924.

    When the building was ready, the foremost writers of the day were asked to contribute miniature works for the library. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote How Watson Learned the Trick, an original Sherlock Holmes story, especially for the library in 1922. This lavish cloth-bound edition contains a miniature book measuring just 38.5 x 30mm, a faithful facsimile of the original handwritten book in Queen Mary's Dolls' House.

    In the 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, the edition also contains an informative booklet with a transcript of the story and information about the Dolls' House.

    18.5 x 16 cm.
