The boxed set contains the following volumes: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes; The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes; The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes; The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Valley of Fear; The Return of Sherlock Holmes and his Last Bow; A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four
Faithfully supported by his chronicler, Dr Watson, Sherlock Holmes pits his wits against 'the Napoleon of Crime', Professor Moriarty, assists European royalty threatened by disgrace, the mysterious death of a young woman due to be married and other intrigues that defeat the detectives of Scotland Yard.
These were the last 12 stories Conan Doyle wrote about Holmes and Watson. They reflect the disillusioned world of the 1920s in which they were written, and Doyle can be seen to take advantage of the new, more open conventions in fiction.
Sherlock Holmes is the greatest fictional detective in the world. This edition, quarter bound in real cloth, with head and tail bands, a ribbon marker, gilt top edge and illustrated cover boards, presents the short stories, illustrated by Sidney Paget.
