9781907360459: The Complete Sherlock Holmes (Collector's Library)

This edition includes all the short stories, many of which are illustrated by Sidney Paget, who prepared these inspired black and white drawings for the original publication in The Strand Magazine. It also contains the four novels: A Study in Scarlet in which Holmes and Dr. Watson first meet, The Sign of the Four, The Valley of Fear and the chilling masterpiece The Hound of the Baskervilles. This edition has an Introduction by David Stuart Davies, Editor of Sherlock Magazine.

Sherlock Holmes is the greatest fictional detective in the world. The hero of 56 short stories and four novels, he is so convincing that letters continue to arrive at 221b Baker Street seeking his help, and when it was thought that he had died in his clash with the evil Professor Moriarty ('The Napoleon of Crime') young men in London wore black armbands.

Review:

This volume, authorized by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate, contains all 4 full-length novels and all 56 short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes. At over a thousand pages, the weighty tome is a perfect gift for budding amateur sleuths, and it is an ideal companion for a long stay on a desert island (or a leisurely trip through the English countryside). As the reader wades past the tense introductions of A Study in Scarlet and moves towards such classic tales as The Hound of the Baskervilles, "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," and "The Final Problem," she is sure to draw her own conclusions about Holmes's veiled past and his quirky relationship with his "Boswell," Watson. Doyle never revealed much about Holmes's early life, but the joy of reading the complete Holmes is assembling the trivia of each story into something like a portrait of the detective and his creator. By the end of the long journey through London and across Europe (with a long stopover at Reichenbach Falls), one is apt to have found a friend for life. --Patrick O'Kelley

From the Publisher:

Here, collected in one volume, are all four full-length novels and 56 short stories chronicling the colorful adventures of Sherlock Holmes--every word Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ever wrote about Baker Street's most famous resident.
