Sherlock Holmes bases

I'm in the throes of a Sherlock Holmes obsession, and I made a bunch of bases from Sidney Paget's drawings, which were published with the stories when they were first in print.

The original images came from the University of Virginia's E-Book Library, which has thumbnails Paget's pictures imbedded in the text (the list of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works with links to what stories they have can be found here: Browse by Author: D).

There are so many of them because I took several crops of most pictures.

Notes:
014, 015, 016: Can you tell I like this scene?
020, 021: Watson, looking very dashing in his traveling cloak in front of the Grimpen Mire.
037: This is Lestrade. I thought he deserved some icon love XD
042, 044: Holmes in a straw hat = win.
049, 050, 051, 052: Watson at Reichenbach Falls (;_;) and the Falls itself.
063, 064: Holmes listening to a violin concert. So happy!
082: Lestrade again. Looking "nautical" *giggles*
083, 084, 085: I bet you couldn't guess that I like this picture a lot too.
086: There is no 86! D: I used a table generator and I had to do a lot of futzing with the HTML afterwards, and I have no idea what code to take out to make the space for 86 go away.
