Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The extraordinary adventures of the world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes, as faithfully recounted by his comrade, Dr. Watson, have captivated readers of all ages for over a century. The stories' blend of heartpounding, fast-paced action and mind-boggling deductive reasoning is as riveting today as it was when first published.

This deluxe illustrated edition contains Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first twelve stories and includes such famous cases as "The Red-headed League," in which Holmes uncovers a well-concealed, devilishly clever criminal plot; "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle," in which Holmes must trap a jewel thief--with astonishing results; "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," in which Holmes and Watson find themselves dealing with treachery, violence, and deadly snakes; and nine more equally thrilling and puzzling mysteries.

Magnificently illustrated with twelve powerful watercolors by award-winning artist Barry Moser, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes features the complete text of the original collection of Doyle's short stories and is an ideal introduction to the fascinating world of this mesmerizing detective.

Synopsis:

When "Scandal in Bohemia" was first published in The Strand Magazine in 1891, Sherlock Holmes, master of deductive reasoning, became an instant sensation. This deluxe illustrated edition includes such famous cases as "The Speckled Band", "The Red-headed League", and "The Engineer's Thumb". Full-color illustrations.
