Below are items recently added to A Holmes & Doyle Bibliography (also known as "The Supplement"). Randall Stock—a fellow Sherlockian from California—suggested that this type of listing would be a useful addendum to the Supplement as another way to track new additions to the bibliography. I am thankful for his suggestion. New items will be presented in monthly installments. Sometime near the end of each month these entries will be “dumped” into the larger bibliography. As always, I am open to comments and suggestions that will make this research tool more useful.

"A private collector from Chicago paid $33,000 yesterday for the 1887 edition of an annual Christmas publication that printed the first Sherlock Holmes story. The story, 'A Study in Scarlet,' was written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1886 when he was a physician making little or no money. The publishers of Beeton's Christmas Annual paid $40 for the copyright after it was rejected by several other houses. The book was part of a collection of memorabilia relating to the world-famous fictional detective. The collection was amassed by Stanley MacKenzie, who died this year aged 82. It fetched a total of $235,600, a representative of the Sotheby's auction house said....".
Popularity Elementary." The Ottawa Citizen, November 18, 1995. H9.
"Here's a mystery Sherlock Holmes would love. In a world of DNA testing, forensic pathology and court television, why does a century-old fictional detective armed only with deductive reasoning still hold readers spellbound? 'Partly it's the same appeal that any superhero has,' says Chris Redmond of University of Waterloo, author of In Bed With Sherlock Holmes. 'And partly, it's just the joy of reading very well-written stories.' About 100 fans of the late 19th-century London sleuth will gather today at a downtown Indianapolis hotel for a two-day Sherlock Holmes symposium....".

Passing reference to Holmes. "...So in an attempt to unlock the secret of this little mystery, I put on my Sherlock Holmes cap, not realizing just how terribly appropriate it was, and called NHK the next morning. It seemed the case bore a striking resemblance to last year's famed 'Case of the Misfiled X-Files,' in which TV Asahi decided to air that show, not in order, but in the order network executives preferred....That catchall excuse 'scheduling' was offered, as well as the fact that there was much greater demand for Sherlock Holmes, which will return in March, sometime between sumo and Diet debates....".

"The King and Queen of Bohemia were there, as was the chief of police and a certain Inspector Valentine. Whispers that the evil Professor Moriarty and his accomplice Colonel Moran were in the vicinity sent a frisson through the crowd. Sixty in all, resplendent in Victorian frock coats and crinolines, they had gathered on Thursday afternoon beneath the clock at the Gare du Nord to investigate the case of the missing suitcases, sent to the station's left- luggage office by Sherlock Holmes in April 1891, and never reclaimed. Founded three years ago, La Quincaillerie Franco-Midlands, the French equivalent of the Sherlock Holmes Society, already boasts 135 branches with more than 300 members in France....".

Review of Arthur & George. "...The quality in Arthur & George I liked the most apart, of course, from Barnes's preternaturally smooth and readable prose was the way it avoids condescension to the past, always going with the grain of the characters' beliefs. One aspect of this is Barnes's treatment of Conan Doyle's sex life, never bowing to the modern orthodoxy that regards Victorian morals as purely a matter of repression and hypocrisy. Another is his treatment of religion. Barnes himself says he has never had 'even glimmerings' of belief, but he presents without irony George's devout Anglicanism and Conan Doyle's wackier spiritualist creed....".

(Toronto), December 11, 2004. A31.
Passing references to Doyle and Holmes. "...The latter half of the 19th century is somewhat remarkable in the history of English fiction for the number of authors who wrote stories or created characters that tapped the properties of myth: Robert Louis Stevenson with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Mary Shelley with Frankenstein, Arthur Conan Doyle and his immortals, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. To the fertility and imagination of the ordinary novelist, these writers, and others, added the gift of encapsulating an archetype, of drawing in strong and vivid colours, figures who became enduring and emblematic. Most especially, they had the gift of creating characters who escape the story they inhabit, who seem either to live on, independent of the fictions in which they were created (Sherlock Holmes), or stand for the perfect individual representation of an already-present myth or legend (Count Dracula). Most of the writers I've named claim their standing among the immortals of fiction on the basis of a single work or character. But there is a writer of the same period who stands in creative pre-eminence to them all. Charles Dickens is the king of English novelists....Dickens was also the greatest of namers, the very Adam of English fiction. The naming of 'Sherlock Holmes' was not a lucky hit. Doyle worried mightily over what to call his rationalist sleuth, and only after much trial, and many unhappy attempts, settled upon his hero's now seemingly inevitable moniker. Doyle had a few other fine hits -- Moriarty was a great find for a fiendish villain -- but his capacity here was a talent, not genius. Dickens, by contrast, was inexhaustibly clever and sure when it came to parcelling out names....".

"Conan Doyle, on Holmes." The New York Times, May 19, 2000.
'''It was really terribly important after the war when all the young men needed contacting,' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle says rather breezily on camera during a 10-minute address he delivers on a DVD recently released by Focusfilm, a distributor in Ossining, N.Y. It was 1926, and by his remarks and manner the writer clearly wants to be done with his celebrated creation, the detective Sherlock Holmes, and move on to matters that he considers more serious: psychic experiences and communication with the beyond. The young men he refers to were killed during World War I. Holmes, he seems to imply, would be better off laid to rest himself if only the public would permit it....On the same disc, part of a set of four, is 'Terror by Night,' a Holmes adventure filmed by Universal during the 40's with Basil Rathbone as the detective and Nigel Bruce as Watson....The detective brings off other nice surprises in three other cases on the discs: 'Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon' (1942), 'The Woman in Green' (1945) and 'Dressed to Kill' (1946), which was Rathbone's last Holmes film. By then he had played the role more than 200 times, not only on screen but on the radio in 'The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.'...The movies come from the National Film Museum, a large archive in Bangor, Me., that provides old film to producers and distributors....".

Rathbone played Holmes in 14 movies during the 1940s as well as on radio for several years. Nevertheless, when Brett was offered the role in a series produced by Granada for the BBC, he was determined to bring his own interpretation to the character. 'I reread everything I could about the character,' Brett said. The results are nearly 10 years of marvelous adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective. Not only has the series been a hit in England, but it also has won loyal fans in America with airings as part of PBS's Mystery! series and as Sherlock Holmes on cable's Arts & Entertainment network.

The Edinburgh-born author said: 'The result was Sherlock Holmes and the result surprised me very much as I learned that many schools of detection working around the world, from France, Egypt and China, founded their system on that of Holmes. 'For many, he seemed like a real person and I even received letters addressed to him which included proposals of marriage.'

Its only Arab reference - firmly pre-Islamic - was the discovery of a modern corpse within the linen wrappings of what should have been an Egyptian mummy. Instead of the great fictional detective in person, David Pirie's series gives us his creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, as a junior version of Dr Watson, and Dr Joseph Bell, Doyle's Edinburgh University medicine tutor and supposedly the inspiration for Holmes, as - well - Holmes by another name.

"Given that Sherlock Holmes possessed one of the finest analytical minds in fiction, it seems extroardinary that he was not a fine chess player. There is no mention of him playing the game in the writings of Arthur Conan Doyle. To amplify the point I ran a quick check on a chess database of more than three million games and there was not a single one attributed to anyone by the name of S. Holmes. I am indebted to Edward Winter's unerringly excellent Chess Notes, a regular digest of matters to do with chess history, for the following quotation from The Adventure of the Retired Colourman in 'The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes': 'Amberley excelled at chess - one mark, Watson, of a scheming mind.' So perhaps Holmes did not have a high opinion of the game or its practitioners.

"Although Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, ranks among the most famous of all Victorian writers, his life is shrouded in as much mystery as one of his stories. The pictures we have of a crusty Victorian grandee give no hint that poor Arthur almost certainly grew up in the full knowledge of his mother's infidelity with a young lodger, who supplanted his drunken, insane father at the head of his family's breakfast table. Instead, countless biographers have rehearsed what is known, even though this has largely been controlled by Conan Doyle himself, for not a single researcher has had unhampered access to his personal papers. Indeed, following bitter legal battles, these papers have not been seen for half a century, and nobody can say for sure where they are, or if they have been destroyed. In researching my novel, The Patient's Eyes (as well as the original Murder Rooms television drama and those that follow this autumn), I have been consistently amazed by what I have found. That Conan Doyle suppressed many facts, especially about his early life, has never been in doubt. But even in the published writing, such as his autobiography, there are many clues to the truth....".

"It was a late summer evening in 1889 when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle sat down to dinner at the Langham Hotel in London with an American publishing agent who had come to commission new works of fiction for Lippincott's monthly magazine. Oscar Wilde was also at the table, and the young writers engaged in mutual flattery. They also discussed such topics as future wars and what Doyle later called 'the cynical maxim that the good fortune of our friends made us discontented.' By the end of the meal, the publishing agent, J. M. Stoddart, had tacked down what he had traveled all the way from Philadelphia for: commitments from Doyle and Wilde that each would write a short novel for Lippincott's. As a result, Wilde produced 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and Doyle the second appearance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, in 'The Sign of Four.' Doyle's handwritten final draft of that story, the oldest surviving complete Sherlock Holmes manuscript, will be auctioned tomorrow at Sotheby's for an anonymous seller.

As a code-breaker, it would have been entirely unnecessary; his own intellect was enough. As biography, he would have declared it absolute rubbish.

For starters, there simply cannot be too many dramas with Tim McInnerny in them, though Henshall is equally good. The thoroughbred cast also includes Sinad Cusack, Brian Cox and Allan Corduner. And it's intriguing to learn about Conan Doyle's life, which was at least as tangled as any of his plots. Viva Holmes!".

December 19, 1999. 8.
"A woman and her young child were visiting an Edinburgh surgery in the 1870s. She was mortified when, within seconds, the doctor had deduced that she came from Fife, had travelled a certain route to the capital, worked in a linoleum factory and had dropped off an older child on the way. Does this supersleuthing sound familiar? It should do. This real-life incident involved Dr Joseph Bell, who is widely seen as the role model for the greatest fictional detective of them all, Sherlock Holmes. Bell was a dazzling lecturer and trailblazing forensic pathologist at Edinburgh University in the latter part of the last century. In 1878, he began teaching a young medical student named Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle saw Bell as his mentor and became his clerk....Not much more is known about Bell's actual relationship with Doyle - many of the relevant papers have been locked away in an interminable legal battle that has been raging since the Forties. However, these skeletal facts have now been fleshed out by writer David Pirie to create Murder Rooms, a new two-part drama for BBC2....".
"Elementary School; Detective Fiction has a Lot to Teach Us about
Old-Fashioned Morals." The Independent (London), May 15, 1999. 47.
"Worldwide, the novels of Agatha Christie outsell everything apart from The Bible. Meanwhile, letters from Sherlock Holmes fans all over the globe still pour in to 221b Baker Street. A recent missive from the police force in Worth, Illinois, asked for the detective's help with an unsolved murder. But why are we so in thrall to such strange figures as Poirot and Holmes with their ridiculous moustaches, deer-stalkers and tics? Why do we have bookshops such as Murder One, entirely devoted to the single genre of detective fiction? In The Great Detectives, a new four-part series for BBC2, the author Nigel Williams...whips out his magnifying-glass and attempts to get to the bottom of 'The Mystery of The Popular Sleuth' by investigating, in turn, Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Philip Marlowe and Jules Maigret....".

Review of "The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle," BBC2. "Television is in its summer doldrums at the moment (as I am sure you will have noticed), which means we have to be grateful for any new, adventurous, individual drama that comes our way. But exactly how much gratitude we should feel for this confused - and confusing - work is questionable. That's not to say its version of the life of Victorian writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and his relationship with his most famous character, Sherlock Holmes, doesn't have its memorable moments - just that it also has some very frustrating ones....".
"Pick of the Day." The Evening Standard (London), December 24,
Review of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking. "Was there ever such a brooding, handsome and strangely sexy Sherlock Holmes as this new version? The great Victorian detective is usually portrayed as an academic and austere individual. But in the hands of British Hollywood star Rupert Everett (right) he maintains these qualities while gaining a hint of another fictional hero, the dark and romantic Heathcliffe. Albeit a version of Heathcliffe who wears a dapper hat and polished shoes....".

"Above Det Supt Barrie Simpson's desk is a quotation from a Sherlock Holmes novel. The man who investigated more than 70 murders during his stint in West Midlands Police's murder squad still looks on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective as the best. 'I like watching Morse and Taggart, they are good entertainment and some elements of them do ring true. But a lot of it is unrealistic. Nobody would investigate murders on their own, and they get their forensic results far too quickly. The best is Sherlock Holmes. He is the master. He was written when most of the tools we use now were not invented, but Conan Doyle was well ahead of his time and incorporated them into his novels.'...".

"Hull City Archives claims to have uncovered documents stating that Sherlock Holmes spent the last years of his life living in a local butcher's shop and receiving benefit payments. 'Popular belief was that he had retired to Sussex to keep bees,' says a proud spokesman. Mmm, we muse. And also that he was made up. A shrug. 'The documents may refer to another Sherlock Holmes.' Excellent deduction.".

According to Javier Marzan, born in the Basque country, his transfer to The Hound of the Baskervilles should be none the worse for not being delivered in the dulcet tones of Peter Cushing.

There is also a new biography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: Teller of Tales by Daniel Stashower (Penguin, pounds 8.99). But for the real Holmes fan - and there are dedicated 'Holmesians' in virtually every country on earth - the truly unmissable commemorative volume must be Starring Sherlock Holmes by David Stuart Davies (Titan Books, pounds 29.99), a leading authority on all things Sherlockian and the editor of the Sherlock Holmes Detective Magazine....".

"Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts got a rare glimpse into the private world of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as thousands of personal papers - from his passport to his jotted-down story ideas - went on display Friday. At the same time, the archive has become entwined in a mystery worthy of Conan Doyle's celebrated fictional detective: the bizarre death of a Holmes scholar. The papers are to be auctioned Wednesday, perhaps to disappear again into the obscurity of private ownership, a fate that had obsessed Richard Lancelyn Green, a former chairman of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London....".
