There were 56 original stories written by Conan Doyle and published in The Strand magazine between 1891 and 1929. The stories are divided among five series. This is from the first series, “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes”.
In this story Holmes and Doyle pull out all the stops for this classic Conan Doyle story. Of all the many excellent tales in life of Sherlock Holmes this must rate amongst the most perplxing of them all. Why would a pawnbroker have to copy out in long-hand the complete Encyclopaedia Britannica, word for word, and what bearing can the knees of a man’s trousers have on the case?
While you’re listening you can read background information about Conan Doyle and the story, play word search games based on the story, etc.
