Step back to London, 1895.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories are full of references to everyday activities and events from Victorian times that make the twenty-first century reader run to the reference shelf. Few, for example, are intimately acquainted with the responsibilities of a country squire, the importance of gentlemen's clubs, or the intricacies of the Victorian monetary system.

These twenty-four short essays explore various aspects of life mentioned in the original tales of Sherlock Holmes, providing modern-day insight into the nineteenth century world. Originally shared through various Sherlockian newsletters around the world, they are gathered here for the first time. Essays cover:

  • The Life of a Country Squire
  • The Holmes' Family Connection to the Vernets of France
  • The Fate of Second Sons
  • The Victorian Medical Practice
  • Victorian Transportion
  • The Origins of Scotland Yard
  • The River Thames
  • Apiculture in the 1800s
  • Westminster Palace
  • Sherlock's Christmas Spirit
  • Practicing Law in Victorian England
  • The Second Anglo-Afghan War
  • Gentleman's Clubs
  • Tobacco
  • 221B Baker Street
  • Abductive Reasoning
  • Dog Breeding
  • Poisons
  • Fingerprints
  • Phrenology
  • Communications
  • The Monetary System
  • The British Museum
  • Chloroform

These examinations bring deeper meaning and color to the adventures of the world's most famous consulting detective.

The president of The Crew of the Barque Lone Star, a Sherlockian Scion Society, notes this collection "brings life to a society which we have only dreamed of."

Whether a fan of Sherlock Holmes or a history enthusiast, this book offers interesting tidbits to all.
