Ars ène Lupin versus Herlock Sholmes (French: Ars ène Lupin contre Herlock Sholmes) is the second collection of Ars ène Lupin stories written by Maurice Leblanc, featuring two adventures following a match of wits between Lupin and Herlock Sholmes. The character "Herlock Sholmes " is a transparent reference to Sherlock Holmes of Arthur Conan Doyle 's detective stories,[1] who appeared in "Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late ", one of the eight stories in the first collection, Ars ène Lupin, Gentleman Burglar. The collection was translated twice into English, as Ars ène Lupin versus Herlock Sholmes in the US (1910, by George Morehead), and as Ars ène Lupin versus Holmlock Shears in the UK (1910, by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos, printed as The Blonde Lady in the US).
