When Arther Conan Doyle wrote his stories about the master detective, Sherlock Holmes, he also created the character of Holmes’ friend, the good hearted but comparatively obtuse Dr. John H. Watson, M.D. Dr. Watson first met Sherlock Holmes in London around 1880. They shared rooms at 221 B, Baker Street and became close friends. Even after Dr. Watson married and moved away the two men saw much of each other and many were the cases in which the doctor aided Sherlock Holmes. In the stories, it is Watson who recounts the adventures of the great sleuth.
The Fictional characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson become so well known both in England and America that many people believe the two men actually lived. In fact countless visitors to London go to see 221 B, Baker Street where Holmes’ rooms have been reconstructed from Conan Doyle’s description of the place.
This book contains a selection of outstanding cases from the archives of that master of deduction and crime detection, the incomparable Sherlock Holmes.
