Overview

More than 100 years after his first appearance, Sherlock Holmes is a literary phenomenon without comparison. Encyclopedia Sherlockiana is the first comprehensive compendium to all the stories, films, characters, and clues from the Canon. Here are synopses of every case in the stories and novels; profiles of notable figures; the aliases, disguises, and codes used by the detective; descriptions of the real cases that inspired Conan Doyle; and much more. More than 100 black-and-white illustrations, movie stills, maps, diagrams, and original drawings from the Strand uncover a tantalizing trail of fact, fiction, and speculation about the ubiquitous and elusive detective. With an introduction by John Bennett Shaw, founding member of the Baker Street Irregulars and the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, this is the most detailed and thorough volume available. Matthew E. Bunson, the author of numerous popular and historical encyclopedias, lives in Las Vegas.
