The Narrative of John Smith, Arthur Conan Doyle's lost first novel, to be published by the British Library for the first time

Arthur Conan Doyle's first and until now unpublished novel, The Narrative of John Smith, is to be released by the British Library on 26 September 2011. The novel, written between 1883 and 1884, gives a fascinating insight into this early period of the author's creative development, only a few years before his creation of Sherlock Holmes would earn him an enduring place in the history of English literature. The British Library has also produced an unabridged audiobook read by Robert Lindsay and is holding a display of the manuscript and other early works in the Library's Sir John Ritblat Treasures Gallery
