Sherlock | Royal Mail Sherlock Minisheet FDC



Issue Date: 18th August


When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published his first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlett, in 1887, he had no idea how iconic the character would become. Inspired by the detective stories of Edgar Allan Poe and real-life figures such as Scottish surgeon, Joseph Bell, Conan Doyle would produce 56 Holmes short stories and four full-length novels before the character to rest in 1927. Published initially in London magazine, The Strand, the stories would find fame around the world, with translations in over 90 languages.
