The Thrilling Real-Life Adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

One of the Conan Doyle Estate’s latest licences is with Bloomsbury Publishing. The new book sports the Conan Doyle Estate trademark and brand as a mark of authenticity.

Over to Bloomsbury

This ground-breaking new book reveals the captivating adventures of the creator of the world’s most famous detective. Celebrated biographer Andrew Lycett collects and annotates the best of Conan Doyle’s travelogues, taking us on a journey from the Arctic, through Europe, the Americas and beyond. Conan Doyle’s Wide World illuminates not just the places he visited, but the man himself.

“Sherlock Holmes wasn’t the mirror image of his creator; he was more cerebral and introverted than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, for a start. But the two men shared the same restless energy which spurred the fictional consulting detective to rouse himself from cocaine-induced reveries in Baker Street and launch into a criminal investigation, while the famously robust Conan Doyle would regularly up sticks to take part in some demanding physical activity – often involving sport (particularly his favourite game of cricket), but also girding himself for lengthy periods of travel, as he ventured abroad in Europe, Africa, North America and Australasia…”
