A Study in Scarlet -- What is It? -- February 21, 2015

Last month we saw that the 11-January-1894 Scranton Tribune carried a series of teasers about A Study in Scarlet, the first Sherlock Holmes novel.  This month we'll look at the 12-January-1894 issue.  The top of the first page above is from the 11th.  The 12th was the same. 

A box on page two had this.  I like the finger. 

On pages three and four, "A Study in Scarlet" appeared between several items. 

Also on page three.

Page four describes Sherlock Holmes' major skill. 

And finally, this box appeared on page 8. 

More next month in this blog.
