Through the Magic Door

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Through the Magic Door” was serialized in 1906-07 when he was 48. His famous Sherlock Holmes stories appeared in The Strand Magazine 1891-93 (with the supposed death of the great detective at Reichenbach Falls) and 1901-27. The book was very revealing – not only to see what books and authors Doyle read and enjoyed, but to be privy to his thoughts on the literature he had collected up to that point. The books are neatly lined up in categories on the shelves of his oak bookcase.
