Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson:
A Textbook of Friendship
Christopher Morley, Editor
Harcourt, Brace and Company
A Wartime Book

well-known for not only being the writer of the much-acclaimed introduction to the Doubleday Complete Sherlock Holmes (referenced below), but is also the author of the difficult-to-find Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson:  A Textbook of Friendship (also below).  It is in this book that you find his "Note for Advanced Students" with his suggestions.
"A complete bibliography of Sherlockiana would almost require a book in itself (*).  Vincent Starrett's The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes contains a valuable reference list.  For the convenience of Readers who may wish to pursue the subject, I mention here only a few of the more important titles."
*"Almost a book"!!!  It took TWO and a complete librarian webpage... and it's still not complete!
