EXPLANATORY NOTES
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, containing eleven stories, was published by George Newnes Limited, in an edition of 10,000 copies, as volume three of The Strand Library on 13 Dec. 1893. All the stories were illustrated by Sidney Paget (90 illustrations in all). That first American edition was published on 2 Feb. 1894 by Harper & Brothers, New York. That American edition included 'The Adventure of the Cardboard Box', omitted from the English and subsequent American editions.

4ear:flapped travelling cap: This reference follows a similar one in "'The Boscombe Valley Mystery'" (Adventures) which inspired Sidney Paget ( 1860-1908), who illustrated the early Sherlock Holmes stories for the Strand, to depict Holmes in the deerstalker hat which has become the detective's trade mark. Paget's brother, Walter, had originally been intended as the illustrator but W. J. K. Boot, the Strand's art editor, sent the commission to Sidney by mistake. Sidney used Walter as his model for the Sherlock Holmes drawings and Walter did, eventually, illustrate one Holmes story, 'The Adventure of the Dying Detective', which appeared in the Dec. 1913 edition of the Strand.
the calculation is a simple one: Sherlockian enthusiasts have argued over whether or not this really is a simple calculation. Had Holmes stated the time it took to travel between two telegraph posts, there would be no difficulty. Without this information, however, the accuracy of Holmes' mathematical calculations must remain the subject of conjecture.
