Shakespeare to Sherlock: Treasures of the British Library is a joint exhibition at the National Library of China (NLC) in Beijing, opening on 21 April 2017 and featuring a range of the greatest treasures of English literature, from Charles Dickens’ manuscript for Nicholas Nickleby and Charlotte Brontë’s ‘fair copy’ manuscript of Jane Eyre to an early Quarto edition of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and the draft of William Wordsworth’s Daffodils.

The exhibition, which runs at the National Library of China from April 21 to June 21, launches a much wider three-year program, also known as "The British Library in China: Connecting through culture and learning". There will be a series of pop-up exhibitions in locations around China, including Wuzhen, Shanghai and Hong Kong, all the way through 2019. (Source)
