"Unique, perfectly unique" [BRUC]
When Vincent Starrett set out to write his cornerstone pastiche in 1920, it wasn't intended for an audience of Sherlock Holmes fans. For one, he didn't know of any others who were as fixated on Holmes as he was.
Fortunately, Richard Sveum, BSI ("Dr. Hill Barton") is well connected in the Sherlockian world and was able to tap the talents of other Starrett experts and enthusiasts to assist him in creating the 2020 Baker Street Journal Christmas Annual: The 100-Year Adventure of The Unique Hamlet. This look at Vincent Starrett's classic work will bring you new understanding of the man and his contribution to the world of book collectors and Sherlock Holmes.
The Canonical Couplet quiz winner this time will receive a copy of the 2020 Baker Street Journal Christmas Annual: The 100-Year Adventure of The Unique Hamlet. Answers are due by February 27, 2021 at 11:59 a.m.
