Here are the original Sherlock Holmes stories by
Arthur Conan Doyle as they first appeared in the famed British
magazine The Strand. This periodical was the
literary sensation of its time, especially with the publication of
the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles (which
appears in its entirety in this volume), when eager readers lined
up outside the magazine''s London offices, waiting for each
installment as it came off press.
This edition contains 37 short stories, reproduced in complete
facsimile (published in individual volumes as "The Adventures
of Sherlock Holmes", The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes", and "The
Return of Sherlock Holmes"), plus the complete novel The Hound
of the Baskervilles.
Today, the collection of the original issues of The
Strand containing the Holmes stories is a rare
collector''s piece. It is brought to you now, complete and
unabridged, comprising a total of well over 600 pages, providing
the undying excitement and fascination of each and
every Sherlock Holmes Adventure.
The drawings of Sidney Paget illustrate the
stories--illustrations as immortal as the stories themselves.
Paget produced more than 350 Sherlock Holmes illustrations, and it
was his depictions which gave Holmes visual reality for everyone,
which projected him throughout the world, and which today still
provide the mold of the original hero in production on stage,
screen and television.
