This private life is the first comprehensive biography (published in 1933) of the world's greatest detective, written by the greatest of all Sherlockian scholars. Vincent Starrett, versatile mystery author and a founding father of the Baker Street Irregulars, sets forth many matters about which Holmes and Watson were somewhat reticent - the background of London in the 1890s; the untidy lodgings, hazy with smoke; the innermost operations of that computer-like mind. Starrett also attempts to answer questions about the origin of Holmes, his methods, his daily life, the untold tales, and other matters that Dr. Watson too often forgot to explain. "Remarkable . . . a compendium of Sherlockiana." - 20th Century Crime and Mystery Writers
