About this title


First published as The Encyclopedia Sherlockiana, this A-to-Z reference contains every person, place, & thing associated with the Baker Street duo. "With more than 3,500 main entries, 8,000 story citations, an exhaustive system of cross references, & nearly two hundred illustrations - many old favorites & many published here for the first time - this is an important volume for all who have consulted with the Master as well as for those anticipating the excitement of their first visit to 221B Baker street. Here, literally, is every person, ever place, & every thing that appeared in the chronicles of the famous consulting detective. Each entry conjures up the thrill of discovering the stories for the first time or casts light upon some obscure Victorian phrase or custom for a current reading or rereading. Evern the homeliest of objects recalls for us the excitement of the grreat mind at work."
