Holmes examined it in his minute way

Sidney Paget


Photographic reproduction of ink or watercolor on paper

Illustration for Arthur Conan Doyle's “The Adventure of Black Peter,” p. 531.

Passage illustrated: “Holmes had been examining the cover of the notebook with his magnifying lens.”

This seems to be a rare case of Paget's caption not quoting the text exactly.
