Publication: Privately printed, 1893, NP
First edition. Fine in dust jacket. "In this autobiography Dr. Watson tells the whole truth .... a humble background in Scotland, with an ominous streak in his heredity; the family upheavals that were to leave their mark on him forever, and the ironic circumstances that led to his becoming a doctor, army surgeon ... and sleuth's assistant. His story takes the reader across four continents, into London and Paris, over the Afghan battlefields and into more than a few ladies' boudoirs. Watson's momentous meeting of Sherlock Holmes ends the book." Publishers Note: All of Dr. Watson's memoirs have been checked against accepted Sherlockian scholarship, and have the full approval of Dame Jean Conan Doyle, daughter of the famous author."
