Richard Lancelyn Green’s Bequest
Richard Lancelyn Green (1953-2004) fell in love with the world of Sherlock Holmes at a young age. Throughout his life his passion grew into all things Doylean. He collected widely, not just things directly related to the author and his works but into related spheres. The Lancelyn Green Bequest is a one-of-a-kind collection from a passionate and well-loved individual.
The collection is extraordinary in its scope. From boxing gloves to waistcoats, through books and pamphlets all the way to photographs and art, the archive is a genuine treasure that causes Conan Doyle’s day-to-day existence and the fascinating era he lived through to jump to life.
