THE QUESTIONABLE PARENTAGE OF BASIL GRANT Cromer CHAPBOOK

THE QUESTIONABLE PARENTAGE OF BASIL GRANT (A Calabash Press Special Booklet), by R. Bostoun Cromer (or D. K. Broster and M. Croom Brown), with an Introduction by Jack Adrian. Ashcroft, BC, Canada; Calabash Press; 2004. 1st edition softcover. A distinctly odd and undeniably hilarious story from The Monthly Review, July 1905. 'The Questionable Parentage of Basil Grant', which seems to have its origin in Andrew Lang's series of stories of the Disentanglers, is likely the earliest piece of Sherlockiana to attempt to track Holmes's heritage. The whole parody is a literary joke, full of fun and a must for the Sherlockian bookshelf. Fine.
