Former Apple executive’s obsessive search for Sherlock Holmes


Miranker’s passion for Holmes continued when he joined Apple in 1996 to help launch the iMac, eventually becoming the chief technology officer until he retired in 2004. His collection is also rich in letters and other documents relating to early Sherlock Holmes fandom.

I’ve always been a big Sherlock Holmes fan and it would be great to have the resources to invest in creating the kind of collection Miranker has.

    I’ve read almost all of the original Conan Doyle stories, and love them. I like having a copy that reproduces the original Strand magazine illustrations. But I’m long past the point where I’d need to collect multiple editions of anything.
