""" Arthur Conan Doyle is bekend van o.a.

A Study in Scarlet.

Arthur Conan Doyle
is schrijver.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is the creator Sherlock Holmes, the best-known detective in literature and the embodiment of scientific thinking. Doyle himself was not a good example of rational personality: he believed in fairies and was interested in occultism. Sherlock Holmes stories have been translated into more than fifty languages, and made into plays, films, radio and television series, a musical comedy, a ballet, cartoons, comic books, and advertisement. By 1920 Doyle was one of the most highly paid writers in the world.
Doyle was born on May 22, 1859 at Picardy Place, Edinburgh, as the son of Charles Altamont Doyle, a civil servant in the Edinburgh Office of Works, and Mary (Foley) Doyle. Both of Doyle's parents were Roman Catholics. His father suffered from epilepsy and alcoholism and was eventually institutionalized. Charles Altamont died in an asylum in 1893. In the same year Doyle decided to finish permanently the adventures of his master detective. Because of financial problems, Doyle's mother kept a boarding house. Dr. Tsukasa Kobayashi has suspected in an article, that Doyle's mother had a long affair with Bryan Charles Waller, a lodger and a student of pathology, who had a deep impact to Conan Doyle. Andere die naar Arthur Conan Doyle zochten, zochten ook naar Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Lewis Carroll en J.K. Rowling

Samenvatting

This is Book 8 of the series ''The Chronological Sherlock Holmes''. ''His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes'' is a collection of seven previously-published Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. Five of the stories were published in ''The Strand Magazine'' between September 1908 and December 1913. The final story, an epilogue about Holmes' war service, was first published in ''Collier's'' on 22 September 1917—one month before the book's premier on 22 October. Some later editions of the collection include ''The Adventure of the Cardboard Box'', which was also collected in ''The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes'' (1894). ''The Strand'' published ''The Adventure of Wistaria Lodge'' as ''A Reminiscence of Sherlock Holmes'', and divided it into two parts, called ''The Singular Experience of Mr. John Scott Eccles'' and ''The Tiger of San Pedro''. Later printings of ''His Last Bow'' correct ''Wistaria'' to ''Wisteria''. Also, the first US edition adjusts the subtitle to ''Some Later Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes''. All editions contain a brief preface, by ''John H. Watson, M.D.''. The preface assures readers that as of the date of publication (1917), Holmes is long retired from his profession of detective—but is still alive and well, albeit suffering from a touch of rheumatism.
