Posted on December 8, Kind of. It was a unique little tale and did not take much time at all to read, but I was particularly struck by the beauty of the original printing. The red cloth cover with the fancy gold embossing is a pleasure to hold. Sherlock Holmes had gone on the completely wrong path…. Take a look at these gorgeous end pages.
They make sense as the majority of the story takes place in mountainous gold mining camps. I was wondering if I could take a page out of this book and create end pages for my novel that are cascades of falling letters…or stamps…. And the pages themselves are gorgeous.

Finding Ygdrasil showed me how greatly Graham was influenced by the ideas of nineteenth-century German Romanticism—admittedly filtered through the pen of Thomas Carlyle. The collections at the Ransom Center allowed me to understand better what Graham was actually trying to do in his books.
How did Graham portray Russia through his books and articles? What unique perspective did he offer? Although he was skilled at writing sketches of everyday scenes, the Russia he saw or thought he saw was a place spared the ravages of industrialization and urbanization. He was not alone. In the years before , both in the USA and Britain, there was a huge growth of interest in Russian culture.
Translations of the great nineteenth-century novelists were popular, whilst the Ballets Russes attracted large audiences when it toured the capitals of Western Europe. Many people in the West appeared to see in Russia a place of beguiling difference, an exotic country with a culture richer and more vibrant than anything that existed elsewhere.
This was something of a fantasy of course—but a fantasy that was widespread. In your book, you aim to reintroduce Graham as a significant literary figure of the twentieth century. Graham originally intended his autobiography to be less an account of his life and more a memoir of the numerous people he had known from the literary and political worlds.

While Chapman leaves Holmes at home in London, other authors took Holmes on some distinctly American adventures. Alongside the proliferating Holmesian fictions, a tradition of tongue-in-cheek nonfiction also arose that treated Holmes and Watson as real people, with Doyle demoted to mere editor when he was acknowledged at all.
