Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries who first appeared IN Publication in 1887. He is the Creation of Scottish-born author and Physician Arthur Conan Doyle.
A brilliant London-based "consulting detective", Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of astute observation, deductive reasoning and inference to solve difficult cases.
Explicit details about Sherlock Holmes' life outside of the Adventures recorded by Dr. Watson are few and far between in Conan Doyle's original stories. Nevertheless, incidental details about his early life and extended Families do construct a loose Biographical Picture of the detective.
An estimate of Holmes' age in the story "His Last Bow" places his year of Birth around 1854. Commonly, the detective's date of birth is cited as 6 January.
Holmes states that he first developed his methods of deduction as a University student. His earliest cases came from fellow university students which he pursued as an amateur.
According to Holmes, it was an encounter with the Father of one of his classmates that led him to take Detection up as a profession and he spent the six years following university working as a Consulting detective, before Financial difficulties led him to take Dr Watson as a roommate, at which point the Narrative of the stories begins.
