Sherlock Holmes-No other character in literature has inspired more people to imitation, tribute, commentary, and scholarship; from the deadly serious to the absurdly humorous. This book is a collection of hard to find essays by some of the most eminent and influential Sherlockians of the last seventy years. All contributors are members of both Hugo's Companions and The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic), Chicago's two oldest scion societies of The Baker Street Irregulars. Tracts by classic scholars Vincent Starrett, Jay Finley Christ, Matthew Fairlie, Robert J. Mangler and Bob Hahn (among others) are brought together with those of more recent commentators in a mix of scholarship, commentary, and light hearted wit. A valuable and important addition to any Sherlockian library.Humphrey, David C. is the author of 'Sir Hugo's Literary Companion: A Compendium of the Writings of Hugo's Companions, Chicago on the Subject of Mr. Sherlock Holmes', published 2007 under ISBN 9780595696611 and ISBN 0595696619.
