ABOUT THE BOOK
"An epistolary novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930). The Stark Munro Letters; being a series of sixteen letters written by J. Stark Munro, M. B. (Bachelor of Medicine), to his friend and former fellow-student Herbert Swanborough, of Lowel, Massachusetts, during the years 1881-1884 (New York, 1895). The Letters read as thinly disguised random lectures on topics that range from religion and politics to poverty and the practice of medicine. Central is Stark Munro's belief in the teleological presence of "the great Central Mind" (p.47), "the all-wise Engineer" )(p.113) who presides over the evolution of the brain and man's spiritual progress (p.50) and assures "the ultimate perfection of the race" (p.112)."
