The Return of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 13 Sherlock Holmes stories, originally published in 1903-1904, by Arthur Conan Doyle. The book was first published on March 7, 1905 by Georges Newnes, Ltd and in a Colonial edition by Longmans. 30,000 copies were made of the initial print run. The US edition by McClure, Phillips & Co. added another 28,000 to the run. This was the first Holmes collection since 1893, when Holmes had "died" in "The Adventure of the Final Problem". Having published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901–1902 (although setting it before Holmes' death) Doyle came under intense pressure to revive his famous character.

The Return of Sherlock Holmes Volume 3

In the tale of The Three Students, which Watson himself refers to as a "small but instructive adventure," Holmes's task is to determine which of three possible suspects has cheated in order to win the coveted Fortescue Scholarship. In The Golden Pince-Nez, a professor's secretary is found murdered, and the key piece of evidence -- a pair of eyeglasses -- is discovered clutched in the victim's hand. The Missing Three-Quarter takes Holmes and Watson to Cambridge, where the university's star rugby player had disappeared just prior to a crucial match. And The Abbey Grange is full of emotional intrigue when Watson finds himself captivated by a beautiful woman whose husband is found dead.
