This miscellany explores the fascinating and enigmatic world of Sherlock Holmes, his place in literary history and how he has become the iconic, timeless character who is loved by millions. Contains facts, trivia and quotes from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary stories, the reader can also explore the often weird and wonderful characters who graced Conan Doyle's pages.
Do you know the difference between a Penang Lawyer and a Tide-Waiter? And if you think a `life preserver' is a cork-filled flotation device, how does Wilson Kemp fit one into the sleeve of his jacket?
The Sherlock Holmes Miscellany is light-hearted and highly informative, and perfect for both the Sherlock aficionado and those new to the world of 221B Baker Street.
