Here, in this beautifully leather-bound, gilt-edged edition, are all four full-length novels and fifty-six short stories about the colorful adventures of Sherlock Holmes - every word Conan Doyle ever wrote about Baker Street's most famous resident.
So devoted and numerous are the followers of the immortal Holmes and so timeless are his colorful adventures that this shrewd and lovable amateur detective whom Doyle invented when he was a young doctor is the most popular character in the last 100 years of fiction. As a lasting tribute to the indestructible detective, whose earliest adventures first appeared in print in 1887, and to his famous creator, Holmes's entire career has been brought together between the covers of this handsome volume.
It is the definitive, authoritative Sherlock Holmes text as originally published in nine separate books. Also included is a delightful preface written by Christopher and Barbara Roden, distinguished members of The Baker Street Irregulars. Here is the whole thrilling and amazing career of Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant Dr. John Watson - all of their adventures in one crime-collected exciting volume, and the enduring æuvre of one of Great Britain's greatest modern thinkers/writers in one huge anthology.
This impressive tome, with attached silk bookmark ribbon, would make a wonderful gift or a beautiful addition to any home library.
