Description This is a story book. When Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories were becoming well known, Barr published in the Idler the first Holmes parody, 'The Adventures of Sherlaw Kombs' (1892), a spoof that was continued a decade later in another Barr story, 'The Adventure of the Second Swag' (1904). Despite the jibe at the growing Holmes phenomenon Barr and Doyle remained on very good terms. Doyle describes him in his memoirs Memories and Adventures as, 'a volcanic Anglo - or rather Scot American, with a violent manner, a wealth of strong adjectivesz, and one of the kindest natures underneath it all.
