Sherlock has 4 volumes of The Children’s Encyclopedia by Arthur Mee on his bookshelf.
The introduction certainly explains why Sherlock would be fond of them:
Nothing could be more false to [the encyclopedia’s] purpose than to imagine that it seeks to cram the mind with things that children need not know.
(One of the volumes has descriptions and images of the solar system, but the section on tides & the moon gets as much space. Handy knowledge for recovering bodies from the River Thames…)
My head canon is that they belonged to Mycroft and his little brother stole them. He displays them proudly in 221B as a trophy— the only visible evidence in the flat of his childhood.
