A selection of circa twenty items to elicit eclectic excitement, featuring rare & unusual detective fiction (including a wonderful copy of The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes in the original, arresting jacket); a first edition of Johnson’s Dictionary showing an unusual and possibly not wholly respectful degree of engagement from an enthusiastic previous owner; Swallows & Amazons author Arthur Ransome’s first major work; Victorian recountings of erotic pursuits in Hindustan, and a trade catalogue from the workshop of William Morris & Co., to name but a few.
