What follows is a preliminary classification, done with no claims to vocational, or even avocational, expertise. Most decidedly not: this is a field in which all credentials, and especially impeccable ones, are suspect.
To give your life, or any significant part of it, to the study of Sherlock Holmes is to defy reason. It is also to disparage Doyle, as John Fowles pointed out in his introduction to The Hound of the Baskervilles , one of the four Sherlock Holmes novels handsomely reissued in Britain early last year, each as a single volume.
Still, the new books look splendid all lined up, and the introductions are very interesting. What each man has to say is well worth hearing, even if not always strictly relevant to the novel it introduces.
When you add to this four-volume set of the novels the five-volume reissue of the short story collections, it certainly provides a dazzling display. Trevor Daugherty.
