G.K. Chesterton’s Sherlock Holmes.

A Facsimile of his Original
Unpublished Holmes Drawings.

Edited & introduced by
Steven Doyle, BSI.

The BSI presents 19 unpublished illustrations of the Sherlock Holmes stories made by Gilbert Keith (G. K.) Chesterton (1874–1936), the great English artist, poet, theologian, journalist, critic, essayist, author, and creator of “Father Brown.”

These illustrations, which were commissioned for a never-published edition of the Holmes tales, lay for years virtually unknown in the Lilly Library of Indiana University. Also included in this volume are appreciations of Chesterton as well as Chesterton’s own writing upon the Holmes Canon.
