As I explained last week, in the process of researching material for volume 6 of the 223B Casebook project, I came across some Sherlock Holmes art by Frederic Dorr Steele that appeared in the Washington Times newspaper. This is the second half with illustrations from four of the stories.
First, from “The Lion’s Mane,” one of the few stories narrated by Holmes himself.
Next from the “The Sussex Vampire.” I particularly like this version, with its dramatic lighting and asymmetrical composition.
One from “The Three Gables” which involves a memoir which threatens a woman’s reputation, and she finds a novel way of taking care of the problem.
Finally, one from “The Three Garridebs,” with its “simple man lured away by a bad guy” plot Conan Doyle used several times before (see “The Red-Headed League” and “The Stockbroker’s Clerk.”)
