"many excellent qualities" [MISS] 

One of the latest books in the BSI Manuscript Series from the BSI Press is The Staunton Tragedy, the manuscript for "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter."

Edited by Wiggins emeritus Michael F. Whelan, the book brought together Sherlockians of all stripes for a wide variety of essays about and related to the story. The story itself was fairly thin and didn't present anything in the way of crime-solving on Sherlock Holmes's part, but the essays in The Staunton Tragedy make up for that.

Series production manager John Bergquist, BSI ("The King of Scandinavia") and transcriptionist-cum-annotator Phil Bergem ("Birdy Edwards") join I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere to talk about this book and their collaboration on manuscripts that spans 10 books.
