From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
The Lancet is a British weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal, among the world's oldest, most prestigious, and best known general medical journals. The Lancet was founded in 1823 by Thomas Wakley, an English surgeon who named it after the surgical instrument called a lancet, as well as after the architectural term "lancet arch", a window with a sharp pointed arch, to indicate the "light of wisdom" or "to let in light". The journal is still running today : thelancet.com.
Between 1882 and 1910, the newspaper published 3 letters and 1 article written by Arthur Conan Doyle.
