"Good old index. You can't beat it." [SUSS]
Sherlock Holmes had quite the index. We get glimpses of it in use at various times throughout the Canon, from a biographical reference to a logging of crime. Was Holmes's index a single large volume, or many smaller volumes? Was it hardbound or simply an assembly of files?
And it never quite seemed like it was organized in a sensible way. How did Holmes manage to call to mind whatever he needed to find in this index?
