INTRODUCTION
There are so many collectable Sherlock Holmes pieces, including books, artifacts, ephemera and memorabilia that it boggles the mind.  Many collectors choose a particular area to collect, while others prefer a more eclectic approach (such as John Bennett Shaw) and have a little of everything (actually, in Mr. Shaw's case it would be more accurate to say "a lot of everything"). 

Since Sherlock Holmes books and other written material are quite easy to come by and their values are fairly easy to establish, The Diogenes Club will focus on collecting Sherlock Holmes books.  Utilization of the information on this page, as well as that contained in The Sherlock Holmes Library, should be helpful to new and established Sherlockians in starting and/or maintaining a Sherlock Holmes book collection.
 

THIS SECTION OF THE DIOGENES CLUB
Unlike the other sections of the Diogenes Club, which are organized into various "rooms", this section simply summarizes existing Diogenes Club page links on ONE page... this one.  The intention is to facilitate access to the specific areas of more "scholarly" interest to Sherlock Holmes collectors.  All of the stories and other areas are accessible by returning to the main page or the site map and accessing them in that manner.
