I recently read a chapter about Conan Doyle's various boxing related pieces such as Rodney Stone. In covering Conan Doyle's best boxing story The Croxley Master (1899) a Paget illustration is featured that appears to contain Sherlock Holmes on the far right.
|Holmes did love Boxing|
Now Conan Doyle loved Boxing and it was one of Holmes's skills too. Was this perhaps a little joke by Sidney Paget? Did Conan Doyle notice (or indeed approve)?
Just a coincidence??
