A page from the notebook of a writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle where one of the most popular personages of the world literature – Sherlock Holmes was first mentioned, was presented during the today’s opening of the exhibition in London Museum (opening on 17 October 2014).
Exposition called ‘Sherlock Holmes: a person who has never lived and never dies’ is the largest in the last 60 years.
‘Sir A. Conan Doyle was able to express a spirit of Victorian England that connected fast progress of human civilization and a broken mind of personality captured in the whirlpool of time’, - marked a museum employee Laura Mitchell. – Stories about the first private detective in the world history appeared in the moment when the entire London followed attempts of the police to find the track of Jack the Ripper.
Exactly in the atmosphere of increased tension and mysticism Sherlock Holmes demonstrated phenomenal abilities of cold mind and showed that the world preserves logic and high order when the evil is punished.
Sherlock Holmes brought Sir A. Conan Doyle not only the world fame, but also wealth. At the time of writing his novel ‘The hound of the Baskervilles’ in 1900, Conan Doyle has been the most paid author in the world literature.
