Good luck finding this one at a garage sale:
Dorothy L. Sayers was one of the earliest and best of those who invented and played the grand game of Sherlockian scholarship, and it is nice indeed to have her essays on Sherlock Holmes in print again. It is even nicer to have available for the first time the script she wrote for Lord Peter Wimsey's comments for the centenary birthday tribute to Holmes broadcast by the BBC in 1954. — Peter E. Blau, geologist and journalist, and the secretary ("Simpson") of The Baker Street Irregulars.
