A classic book on two of English literature’s most iconic characters. First published in 1953, this is one of the earliest and best studies of Sherlock Holmes. S. C. Roberts searches Conan Doyle’s stories for clues and develops biographies of the characters, revealing information about their lives and personalities which less observant readers may fail to notice. Holmes & Watson also features two classic “unrecorded adventures”–pastiche tales by a master of the form. This new edition includes an introduction by the President of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, reflecting on the book’s importance as a classic work of Holmesiana.
