Description

After Arthur Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes in the novel A Study in Scarlet in 1887, he wrote a series of twenty-four short mysteries featuring the detective and his colleague, Dr. Watson, in the pages of the Strand Magazine from 1891 to 1893.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes collects the first twelve of these tales—including “A Scandal in Bohemia” (which introduces Irene Adler), “The Red-Headed League,” “The Five Orange Pips,” and “The Speckled Band”—some of the greatest stories in the Sherlock Holmes canon.

This edition includes all 104 illustrations from the original Strand publications by Sidney Paget, a short introduction, and author bio.

    This is a marvelous edition of Sherlock Holmes' early adventures, complete with illustrations from the original serialization. Many ebook versions of cherished classics are poorly done. This is one is a beauty.

  • Good Read, Dry

    I enjoyed the stories, though couldn't help feel a bit let down. Even though they are short stories, it still feels like there should be some character development or something more than relatively dry case recitals.
