The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes: 
Essays on Victorian England
Volume Two
“[P]repare to delve into a charming set of illustrated guidebooks to Holmes and his 1895 London.”
          - Carole Nelson Douglas, Bestselling Author 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle references many everyday Victorian activities and aspects that are lost on the twenty-first century reader. These short essays provide modern readers a better understanding of Victorian England and greater insight into the world of Sherlock Holmes. His cases take on richer meaning when the reader grasps the subtleties of such details as the blue ribbon mentioned in "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box," the doss houses Shinwell Johnson knew about, or how one contracted brain fever.
