These delightful essays by such luminaries as Dorothy L. Sayers, Vincent Starrett, Ronald A. Knox, and S. C. Roberts form a classic work in Sherlockian scholarship, edited by H. W. Bell.
Topics include Holmes’s college career, the medical career of Dr. Watson, Mrs. Hudson’s little-known exploits, and the mystery of Mycroft Holmes. There is also speculation regarding Holmes’s view of women and Holmes’s nemesis, Mr. Moriarty. Did he exist? A. G. Macdonell attempts to prove otherwise.
“Bell’s work is a landmark and a model of method.”—Barzun and Taylor, A Catalogue of Crime
