A Study In Scarlet.

Simon Goodenough [Planned & Edited By]

First U.S. edition. A Sherlock Holmes murder dossier based on the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. "An American visitor is found murdered in mysterious circumstances in a London house. A woman's wedding ring, cigar ash, the monogram on a handkerchief, and a message written in blood are all among the clues that lead Holmes to a second blood-bespattered body in a hotel bedroom where a box of poisoned pills enable him to put his finger on the murderer and reveal a desperate plot of love and revenge that has its roots in Salt Lake City." Fine in stiff pictorial slipcase with original unopened shrinkwrap. Complete with Dr. Watson's private papers, notes, telegrams, maps, photographs, newspaper clippings, and real clues. If you can't solve the mystery you can always open the sealed section for the solution to this famous mystery.
