A Dedication to Jeremy Brett

"After all, it is a question of money with these fellows, and I have the British treasury behind me. If it's on the market I'll buy it -- if it means another penny on the income-tax. It is conceivable that the fellow might hold it back to see what bids come from this side before he tries his luck on the other..." --Sherlock Holmes, from the The Second Stain

Publicationa Brettiana is a graphic listing of as many Brettish-related studies and literary entries that I have been able to locate. This section shall be updated further when more new publications come to my notice. The following publications comes from various sources -- both enquired and searched for THE most inexpensive offering available. Pubilcationa Brettiana was created to simply inform all Brettians of reading sources and to hopefully, yet vainfully, try to satisfy our insatiable appetite of Brettish education. Increments are either in US dollar ($) or UK sterling (), unless addressed otherwise. To perform foreign exchange rate conversion, use the Universal Currenct Converter.

For other listings of Brettish nostalgia, please consult Memorabilia Brettiana, Paraphernalia Brettiana de Exotica, and Influencing Those Inspired Illustrators. If there is any Brettian who knows where to obtain the Brettish-related publications, the editor would be much obliged in receiving the information.
