  •  A list handwritten by Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 

Most famous for his 'Sherlock Holmes' detective stories, Scottish-born Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was an innovator of the crime fiction genre. His writing skills included works of science fiction, plays, poetry, historical novels, romances and non-fiction.

A string of recent Hollywood movies and a hugely popular BBC TV series have led to a revival of interest in Sherlock Holmes over the past few years, 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has written the names of 14 notable people (and their professions) in bold black ink on an envelope. 

Among them are: writer Douglas Goldring; politician Ellen Wilkinson; journalist Holbrook Jackson; actor Leon M. Lion; painter C. R. W. Nevinson; and the actress Elsa Lanchester.

The envelope is accompanied by four other items (two typed letters, a handwritten letter and a menu) relating to Doyle's son Adrian Conan Doyle (1910-1970) and daughter Jean Conan Doyle (1912-1997).
