MANUSCRIPT OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR LECTURE DOYLE, ARTHUR CONAN. Three drafts of a lecture he delivered during his 1894 North American tour, each incomplete and unsigned, including a fragmentary Autograph Manuscript on 8 pages, and two mostly complete Typescripts with over 18 lines of holograph additions. Together 40 pages, mostly 4to, written on rectos of separate sheets; faint scattered soiling, dog-eared and creased corners, occasional moderate foxing. (MRS) Np, circa 1894
"It is naturally repugnant for a man to stand up on a public platform and to talk about himself and his own work, for never until a man attempts to do so . . . does he realize how very insignificant things both himself and his own works are . . . ." A version of this lecture was published in the appendix to Christopher Redmond's Welcome to America, Mr. Sherlock Holmes, 1987.
