From the smoky sitting room of 221 B Baker Street to the Murky alleyways of foggy London, The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes explores the world of our greatest detective and his collaborator and “chronicler”, Dr. Watson.
Concise yet comprehensive, the book introduces the reader to the major cases that Holmes and Watson grappled with, all of which are clearly summarised. The legacy of the great detective extends to a vast array of Holmesian collectables and ephemera, revealed within these pages along with images of the instruments and tools Holmes himself would have used. This indispensable volume concludes with a selected list of some of the major Holmesian and Sherlockian groups throughout the world.
The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes is an imperative addition to the Holmesian collector’s library as well as a wonderful introduction to history’s most famour detective.
