Here, in two volumes, is every word that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) ever wrote about the adventures of the detective and the doctor... fifty-six short stories and four complete novels, arranged chronologically from Holmes's first case, in 1874, when he was a university student, to his signal service to the British Empire in the opening days of the First World War.

William S. Baring-Gould, the editor, who was one of the greatest Sherlockian authorities, wrote two previous volumes about the Sage of Baker Street...'The Chronological Holmes and Sherlock Homes of Baker Street: A Life of the World's First Consulting Dectective.' To this work he contributed eleven fascinating chapters of introduction on Conan Doyle, on Holmes and Watson and the evil Professor James Moriarty, and on the Baker Street scene.; he also provided 'interludes' that throw a new light on many perplexing problems raised by Watson's writings; and in addition annotated each adventure from his vast collection of 'Writings about the Writings.' He amassed as well, form files of yellowing books and magazines, British and American, hundreds of illuminating maps, diagrams, coats of arms, photographs, and drawings for inclusion in this collection. All the most celebrated illustrators of the Canon are represented among them, Sidney Paget of the Strand, Frederic Dorr Steele of 'Collier's' and William H. Hyde of 'Harper's Weekly,' as well as numerous others.
