"Little could Dr. Watson believe that the pathetic figure huddled before him was the great detective, Sherlock Holmes. Alas, it was his old friend Holmes, but a Holmes in bondage-not to any archvillian-but to a 7% solution of cocaine and sterile water. Driven by the drug to wild ravings, Holmes had to be duped into rehabilitation-before it was too late. John Hamish Watson was born in England in 1847. After a childhood spent abroad, he returned to England, where he took his medical degree. After becoming an Army surgeon, he served in the Second Afghan War, where he was severely wounded and forced to retire from the military. Upon his return to Britain, he met Sherlock Holmes. The rest is history. The Seven-Per-Cent Solution was dictated by Dr. Watson shortly before his death in 1940 but suppressed by him for reasons of national security."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
