Dating "The Creeping Man"

Abstract

In producing the first ever facsimile edition of the original manuscript of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 'The Adventure of the Creeping Man' it became apparent that the manuscript contains a number of differences from what subsequent readers recognise to be the 'agreed' text of the story. One of those resituates the events of the tale within the wider framing narrative of the life of Sherlock Holmes. This article examines the implications of this shift in chronology, particularly in relation to our wider understanding of the life story of the Great Detective.
