The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes: Essays on Victorian England Volume 3 Liese Sherwood Fabre

The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes:
Essays on Victorian England
Volume Three

“[P]repare to delve into a charming set of illustrated guidebooks to Holmes and his 1895 London.”
          - Carole Nelson Douglas, Bestselling Author

This third collection of essays provides additional insights into English life of the late 1800s. During this era, gas and electric lights appeared, the telephone made its debut (although Holmes seemed to prefer the telegram), and the gramophone recorded Sherlock playing his own Stradivarius violin. Holmes enjoyed attending the opera at Covent Garden, reviewing the agony columns, and keeping his own scrapbooks. Watson treated patients with brandy, while yellow fever and diabetes affected populations. And murderers included jellyfish, snakes, and the Italian-American import of the Carbonari. In all, twenty-four articles address aspects of everyday Victorian life from the mundane (cardboard) to the singular (the Crown Jewels)—a little something for everyone.

As an added bonus, the volume includes a reprint of Dr. Sherwood-Fabre’s Baker Street Journal article on “Evil Women: The Villainesses of the Canon.”
