For Sale: The Sherlock Holmes Companion: An Elementary Guide by Daniel Smith

A beautiful and lavishly illustrated book on one of the greatest and most enduringly popular literary characters of all time: Sherlock Holmes.

Since it's original printing five years ago, we are re-issuing The Sherlock Holmes Companion with a full update of all the exciting detective developments from both the small and big screen as well as further details on all the major characters and locations.

Illustrated throughout with more than 150 pictures ranging from period engravings and book jackets to modern-day location shots and film stills from TV adaptations, this is a compendious guide to all the stories, their author and the enigmatic pipe-smoking creation at their heart.

Daniel Smith's witty and informed text provides plot summaries of every single Sherlock Holmes story, potted biographies of Holmes, Moriarty, Watson and of course Conan Doyle, and interviews with many original interviews with the actors who've played Holmes over the years.

This is a book aimed at both the Holmes aficionado and at the gift market - comprehensive and nostalgic while also rigorously critical and not afraid to rank the better Holmes stories against the lesser.

As a collector of all things Sherlockian, I kept putting this book off. I kept telling myself I didn't really need another Sherlock companion book, but I'm weak when it comes to this sort of thing, caved in and bought it anyway. I'm glad I did! It's one of the nicer companion books I've seen. It's laid out nicely with a brief synopsis of each story as well as a history of both fictional and non-fictional characters & actors who have portrayed Holmes and Watson. I found the timeline in the beginning very useful. The images are really nice. Some of them were new to me. Overall I've found this to be an enjoyable compilation & a worthy addition to my collection. I think this would be a great place to start for anyone new to the Canon who discovered Sherlock from the excellent BBC production of the same name and wants to check out the original.

Very good, although the story summaries are incomplete

Very good, professional presentation. My only complaint is the summaries of the stories fail to include the conclusion... as if spoilers were called for in the case of stories that are over a hundred years old! Oh well, no big deal, since you can just google each story if you don't have the time to sit and read them all, but you shouldn't have to. Anyway, very enjoyable. Definitely recommended.

This is great beginner book. There are lots of facts and trivia which effectively make this great bedside reading. I've always enjoyed Sherlock Holmes and this is great addition to my library. For those new to Holmes, this is a great way to add something to the stories and help with understanding the world the Great Detective moved through. Two thumbs up!

Excellent for anyone interested in Sherlock Holmes
