Sherlock’s Books

March 27, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - March 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Sherlock Holmes

Presented by Bob Madison

Retired English professor Bob Madison will offer a discussion of the books of Sherlock Holmes—not the books the famous detective appeared in, but the books that appeared in the famous stories.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was himself especially fond of books, as he wrote in his bibliographical memoir Through the Magic Door, and many of Doyle’s favorites shaped his well-known Baker Street characters. Professor Madison will share the research for his recent Baker Street Journal article, including having on hand copies of the volumes purported to have been consulted by Holmes and his chronicler, Dr. John Watson.
