The Texas Set

The Texas Set Limited Edition in slipcase

The Texas Set:
Limited Edition Boxed Set.

The Texas Set consists of limited edition copies of Bohemian Souls and The Wrong Passage, plus a separate booklet containing indexes for both volumes. The two books are signed by the editors and contributors, and along with the index volume, are housed in a custom slip case. The trade editions of both of these books sold out rapidly, and The Texas Set is now the only means of obtaining copies of these important additions to Canonical scholarship.

Published by the Baker Street Irregulars with the cooperation of the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, both books contain a facsimile of Arthur Conan Doyle’s original manuscript along with a thoroughly annotated typescript, commentary, a manuscript description and its history.

Only 75 sets of these specially bound, gilt-stamped volumes in a custom slipcase are available.
