Charles Altamont Doyle, father of Arthur Conan Doyle, spent the last days of his life in asylums, but the question remains: was he actually mad? This book provides the evidence for readers to judge for themselves. Here reproduced in its enterity is Doyle's diary, a wondrous blending of words and watercolour, a collage of fact and fancy featuring exquisitely detailed fairies and birds, Punch-like cartoons and a never-ending stream of quips and puns.
