    Ten Bound Volumes of The Strand Magazine from Selected Years Between 1892-1909. (London: George Newnes, Ltd., 1892-1909), all volumes around 800 pages each, light blue cloth with gilt and black lettering and decoration on spine and front board, some edges gilt, 8vo (7" x 9.5"). In a way, The Strand Magazine was the periodical that Sherlock Holmes built (and to a certain degree, vice versa). With hindsight, at least, the first publication of a great percentage of the Sherlock Holmes stories has become The Strand's legacy. The 1904 volume offered here includes four Holmes stories later among those collected in The Return of Sherlock Holmes: "The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez", "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter", "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange", and "The Adventure of the Second Stain". Other volumes in this lot contain some of Arthur Conan Doyle's Round the Fire stories, as well as tales by W.W. Jacobs, E. Nesbit, and Arthur Quiller-Couch, among numerous others. Overall, the volumes are good to very good. Most show some shelf wear and light foxing, mostly to the endpapers. Both the 1892 and 1908 volumes have detached spines, and a couple of volumes have loose hinges. Still, this assortment of bound original Strand magazines is an attractive addition to any collection of Sherlock Holmes or late-nineteenth century British literature.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
