Sherlock Holmes statue in Picardy Place, Edinburgh, close to the site of his author’s birth.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's custom-made portable desk has emerged for sale for £96,000 - and it is as intricate as one of his Sherlock Holmes' plots.
On first glance it appears to be a standard leather trunk, before folding out to reveal a wooden desk and a bookcase.
Conan Doyle, a keen traveller, wanted to be able to continue to write wherever he found himself day to day.
The desk was devised by the French goods maker Goyard for the prolific author in 1925.
It is being sold by furniture dealer Timothy Oulton, who has a gallery in Chelsea, west London.
