The Complete Sherlock Holmes

All 4 Novels and 56 Short Stories

The complete collection of Sherlock Holmes's adventures in crime, including all four novels and fifty-six short stories featuring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic hero

Volume I includes the early novel A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, The Sign of Four presents Holmes's famous "seven percent solution" and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery. Also included are Holmes's feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," "The Musgrave Ritual," and "The Five Orange Pips."

Volume II begins with The Hound of the Baskervilles, a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written. The Valley of Fear matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmes's exploits from "The Adventure of the Red Circle" to the twelve baffling enigmas from The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes.

Conan Doyle's incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.
Portrait
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born on May 22, 1859, in Edinburgh. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and began to write stories while he was a student. Over his life he produced more than 30 books, 150 short stories, poems, plays, and essays across a wide range of genres. His most famous creation is the detective Sherlock Holmes, who he introduced in his first novel, 
A Study in Scarlet (1887). This was followed in 1889 by an historical novel, 
Micah Clarke. In 1893 Conan Doyle published
The Final Problem in which he killed off his famous detective so that he could turn his attention more toward historical fiction. However, Holmes was so popular that Conan Doyle eventually relented and published 
The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901. The events of the 
The Hound of the Baskervilles are set before those of
The Final Problem, but in 1903 new Sherlock Holmes stories began to appear that revealed that the detective had not died after all. He was finally retired in 1927. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died on July 7, 1930.

This is a gorgeous book that I think anybody who likes Sherlock Holmes should have. The cover is absolutely stunning. Also it contains the complete Sherlock Holmes not just the main stories.

Leider ist dies nur Volume 1, den zweiten Band hierzu gibt es wohl nicht in gedruckter Form. Inhalt sind die 3 Novellen A Study in Scarlett, The Sign of Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, die 12 Kurzgeschichten aus The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes und die 11 Kurzgeschichten aus Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.
