What were the reasons for Sherlock Holmes’ heavy addiction to tobacco? What is meant by a Trichonopoly and a Lunkah? Why did Holmes keep his cigars in the coal scuttle and his tobacco in a Persian slipper? These and other perplexing questions form the basis for this detailed study of tobacco and its uses in the Sherlock Holmes saga. As fans know, Holmes was an expert on the subject and author of a monograph on tobacco. This study by Holmes expert and crime writer Kelvin Jones, follows Holmes’ own deductive methods, and includes an appendix with one hundred and thirty two extracts from the 60 Holmes stories, all dealing with tobacco. For smokers and Holmes aficionados, this volume is a must!
