Shirley Holmes? Surely not! This charming volume may be read and appreciated for its nostalgia value alone. Included is an Introduction by George A. Vanderburgh, the entire script of Basil Mitchell's three-act play The Holmeses of Baker Street (which introduces Shirley, "a tall, slim girl of nineteen"), a story adaptation by Frederick Arnold Kummer titled "The Adventure of the Queen Bee," and another story called "The Canterbury Cathedral Murder." There are reproductions of newspaper advertisements and playbills, including the one for play's premier at the Garrick Theatre in 1933. Trade paperback.
