      Sherlockians reading about Joseph Stangerson might like to know that Holmes
      wrote 'A Study In Scarlet' without at that time ever having visited America
      - he read up on America in the Encyclopaedia Britannica and from newspaper
      articles. The name 'Stangerson' seems to have been an adaptation from the
      real-life case of the disappearance of a German baker named Urban Napoleon
      Stanger on 12 November 1881 in the East End of London.

      Hi Sherlockians,

      To get to know Sherlock Holmes better, i would like members to ask questions
      on the Canon. So here goes

      "What was the book that was found on Joseph Stangerson's person when his
      dead body was discovered ?"

      Cheers
