Sherlock Holmes – Playboy?

Not very likely!

However the then newly-published Playboy magazine had in its first issue of December 1953, an Introduction to Sherlock Holmes with the opening section from The Sign of Four entitled The Science of Deduction and stating, that “with the next issue, Playboy will present a series of the most famous adventures of Sherlock Holmes”.

This was followed in the January 1954 edition of the magazine with A Scandal in Bohemia, and in the February 1954 issue with The Copper Beeches.

As far as I can determine, that was the end of the series.

All three adventures can be found on the Library page of this website. Earlier versions of the documents on the Library page were incomplete. They have now been updated and are complete.
