Robinson, B. Fletcher
Addington Peace of the Yard (Episodes IV-VI).
Cassell's, London 1907 - Photocopy from originals. This item consists of 3 short stories written by B. Fletcher Robinson that were republished in The Penny Magazine shortly after his death in 1907. These tales constitute half of a 6-part serialization entitled Addington Peace of the 'Yard'. This serialization is based upon an earlier 6-part serialization entitled The Chronicles of Addington Peace that was published in The Lady's Home Magazine of Fiction between 1904 and 1905. The final 3 tales in both serializations are entitled The Mystery of the Causeway, The Vanished Millionaire and The Mystery of the Jade Spear. However, there are interesting differences between the episodes published in both versions of the serialization. For example, all the original stories were illustrated by Thomas Heath Robinson (no relation to B. Fletcher Robinson), whereas the illustrations in the final three episodes of the latter serialization are different and anonymous. Furthermore, the original serialization introduced B. Fletcher Robinson as the "Joint author with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his Best Sherlock Holmes Story The Hound of the Baskervilles", whereas, The Penny Magazine refers to him as " the author who collaborated with Sir A. Conan Doyle in 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'." A 1905 book version of eight Addington Peace stories is listed in Queen's Quorum as one of the 106 (later 125) most significant short detective/crime stories ever written. 25 pages of black type with illustrations,
