One of the books in Otto Penzler’s Sherlock Holmes Library, a reissue of eight previously hard to find classics from the earlier age of Sherlockiana, it was originally published in 1940. Unlike The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, which was an original composition, Starrett served as editor of this collection of Sherlockiana, contributing only one piece; a pastiche entitled The Adventure of the Unique Hamlet... There are some good reads in 221B: Studies in Sherlock, but it is a mixed bag and not on the same level as Starrett’s Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

One of the most famous of all works of Holmesian scholarship, this is a volume eagerly sought by readers and fans. Among the delights to be found in its pages are essays on "The Care and Feeding of Sherlock Holmes," "Dr. Watson's Secret," and "Was Sherlock Holmes an American?" Can anyone resist the temptation to read the contribution entitled "On the Emotional Geology of Baker Street"? Contributors include such notables as Christopher Morley, famed illustrator Frederic Dorr Steele, and A. Conan Doyle himself. "Useful, entertaining, imaginative, it belongs on every reader-insomniac's bedside shelf."--The Catalogue of Crime… (more)
