THE BATTERED TIN DISPATCH BOX MAKES A FINAL APPEARANCE
More than 40 years ago, private papers and personal artifacts that belonged to the sleuth's creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, were reportedly spirited away during a family dispute over his estate. Many scholars began to doubt the existence of the manuscripts and sketches. Others feared they had been destroyed.
