ABOUT THE BOOK: Arsène Lupin vs. Herlock Sholmès is a collection of two adventures of Arsène Lupin, written by Maurice Leblanc. These adventures feature a match of wits between Lupin and Herlock Sholmès, a transparent reference to Sherlock Holmes, the hero of Conan Doyle's detective stories. The first story, "The Blonde Lady", opens with the purchase of an antique desk by a mathematics professor. The desk is subsequently stolen, as it turns out, by Arsène Lupin. Later, both Lupin and the professor realize that a lottery ticket, left inadvertently in the desk, is the winning ticket, and Lupin proceeds to ensure he obtains half of the winnings while executing a near-impossible escape with a blonde lady. After the theft of the Blue Diamond, again by a blonde lady, Ganimard made the connection to Lupin and an appeal was made to Sherlock Holmes to match wits with Lupin. Inadvertently, Lupin and his biographer met with the newly arrived Shears and his assistant, Wilson, in a Parisian restaurant, and they shared a cautious détente before Lupin sets off to lay his traps. Despite Lupin's efforts, Sherlock Holmes is able to unveil the identity of the blonde lady and Lupin's involvement in the crimes linked to her. Lupin succeeded in trapping Sherlock Holmes, however, and sends him off to Southampton in a boat, but Shears manages to escape back to Paris and engineer the arrest of Lupin. After Shears leaves, however, Lupin outfoxes his French captors and manages to bid farewell to Shears and his assistant at the Gare du Nord. "The Jewish Lamp" opens with another appeal to Holmlock Shears for help in recovering a Jewish lamp. After reading the appeal, Sherlock Holmes is shocked to read a second letter, this time by Lupin and arriving on the same day's post, which warns him not to intervene. Sherlock Holmes is outraged by Lupin's audacity and resolves to go to Paris. At the Gare du Nord, Shears is accosted by a young lady, who again warns him not to intervene, and finds that the Echo de France, Lupin's mouthpiece newspaper, is proclaiming his arrival. Sherlock Holmes proceeds to investigate the crime and finds out the true reason for Lupin's appeal not to intervene. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Maurice Leblanc (1864 - 1941) was a French novelist and writer of short stories, known primarily as the creator of the fictional gentleman thief and detective Arsène Lupin, often described as a French counterpart to Arthur Conan Doyle's creation Sherlock Holmes.
