RE. section 6.1, the exact phrase "Elementary, my dear Watson" is used in Psmith Journalist (1915). The article implies otherwise.

Story dating[edit]

"All but one are set in the Victorian or Edwardian eras, between about 1880 and 1914."

Which story is set before 1880 or after 1914? 2600:6C55:7600:1B72:0:F358:5F91:3384 (talk) 07:50, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

That would be "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane", which was set in the 1920's. Mediatech492 (talk) 13:05, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

The two colorized images of Sherlock Holmes are not in the public domain. The original illustrations by Sidney Paget, which are in the public domain, are black and white. The colorized versions are under copyright to the person who colored them in. I suggest replacing the two colorized images, one from The Final Problem and the other from The Man with the Twisted Lip, with the original black and white images.

 Not done for now: Adapted public domain black-white images may be copyrighted when adding different colors, shades, and tones in various places of derivative work only if sufficient changes to the preexisting item are in place. These changes, if in color, must be 'sufficiently creative' enough to constitute a new work of authorship. I'm not sure that simply coloring items to resemble how they would look in nature meets this directive. This might be a "gray area", so to speak. Do you have any information on who the (color) illustrator may be, and how long ago the color was added?  Spintendo  13:23, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
