Not just one, but two boxes containing papers that once belonged to Dr. John Watson, faithful friend and biographer of Sherlock Holmes, have been discovered in the vaults of the bank that took over the business of Cox & Co. These have proved to be a gold-mine for Sherlockians worldwide.
The boxes, with their contents, were sent to Hugh Ashton in Japan, who has examined the papers within, and edited and prepared for publication some of the adventures he discovered.
These adventures have been published by Inknbeans Press, and are now available from purveyors of fine literature worldwide.
The book covers below and the "Books" menu bar at the top of each page provide links to details of the volumes so far produced.
The First Box ("The Deed Box")
It was initially assumed that this box (discovered at the end of 2011) was the that referred to in Thor Bridge, but some of the documents mentioned there were not present there. Though many tales of the great detective were discovered (forming three volumes of shorter stories, and one full-length novel), Ashton was convinced that there were more treasures in store.
The Second Box ("The Dispatch-Box")
This box, corresponding more closely to the Thor Bridge description than the first, was discovered about a year after the "deed box". Preliminary investigations have so far been encouraging, and the first volume of adventures from this box has already been published.
