You Know My Methods: A Collector’s Approach to the Sherlockian Canon is an exhibition by Glen Miranker, who has one of the premiere collections of Sherlock Holmes books and artwork in the United States. The exhibition both celebrates the iconic Hound of the Baskervilles in the 110th year since its American publication and explores the divagations that one collector has enjoyed in his pursuit of the Hound.
Visitors have the rare opportunity to see holograph manuscript pages of the Hound, a manuscript that has largely vanished. Also on display are unusual works including a publisher’s dummy for the American first edition; an original illustration by the artist Sidney Paget, who first defined the face and figure of the Great Detective; lurid movie posters of the 1930s and ’40s, and more.
