Twenty years before the Sherlock Holmes mysteries were written, a fictional New York private investigator was celebrated for his ability to solve crimes based on the principles of observation and deductive reasoning that later became Holmes' hallmark. Originally published in 1864 and never before reprinted, "Leaves from the Note-Book of a New York Detective" features twenty-nine cases of James Brampton, the first American detective hero to appear in fiction."
