Other Sherlock Holmes classics available from Summit Classic Press in large print editions are The Hound of the Baskervilles (ISBN-13: 978-1502895790; ISBN-10: 150289579X), The Sign of the Four (ISBN-13: 978-1502566751; ISBN-10: 1502566753) and His Last Bow (ISBN-13: 978-1500822712; ISBN-10: 150082271X). Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 – 1930) is known the world over as the creator of the famous consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. But Conan Doyle was a prolific writer who produced a large body of work ranging from non-fiction and full-length novels to a wide-ranging collection of short stories.

Doyle's first major success as a writer came with the debut of Sherlock Holmes in the 1887 publication of "A Study in Scarlet". Holmes was a popular sensation, and more stories followed. By 1891, Sherlock Holmes was enough to provide Doyle a living, but Doyle came to resent Holmes, who kept him from what he considered "more important" work. In 1893 he "killed" Holmes, as the detective and his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, plunged to their deaths at Reichenbach Falls in "The Final Problem". It was no mere publicity stunt. Doyle considered himself finished with Mr. Sherlock Holmes.

The public uproar in reaction to Holmes' "death" shocked Doyle, with even his own mother complaining, and as the clamor continued he was forced to bring the detective back in "The Hound of the Baskervilles", published, to vast public sigh of relief, in 1901. Ironically, the character Doyle resented as a "distraction" from serious work would ultimately appear in fifty-six short stories and four novels, together with countless adaptations to films, television, cartoons, and modern pastiches by an assortment of authors.

In fact, the "world's first consulting detective" is widely regarded, along with Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan, as the best-known fictional characters in the world.

From the Inside Flap:

The stories known collectively as The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes turned the literary detective into a household name and are the best-loved of Conan Doyle's Holmes stories. From "The Scandal of Bohemia," a case in which Holmes is famously outwitted by a woman, to the "The Five Orange Pips," in which Holmes is pitted against the Ku Klux Klan, to "The Final Problem," in which Holmes and his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, plunge to their deaths at the Reichenbach Falls, the stories bear witness to the flowering of Doyle's genius.
