Baker Street Studies by H. W. Bell

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

About the Author

Harold Wilmerding Bell (1885-1947) was an archaeologist and a collector of books and manuscripts relating to the fictional character, Sherlock Holmes, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Bell’s collection of Sherlockiana was bequeathed to a Boston men’s literary club called the Speckled Band, and is now deposited at the Houghton Library at Harvard.

He edited the Baker-Street Studies (1934), and several works devoted to Sherlock Holmes. He also produced an English translation of Charles Diehl’s Byzantine portraits (1927).

Bell died in 1947.
