"A monthly magazine costing sixpence but worth a shilling." 

For 60 years The Strand Magazine showcased the best writers in England and America. 

The magazine did not just reflect the age, it shaped it. 

It was a popular publication for the best in fiction, featuring works by some of the greatest authors of the 19th and 20th centuries, including Rudyard Kipling, Leo Tolstoy, Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as European writers such as Victor Hugo and Lermontov. 

Conan Doyle was to prove one of the Strand’s most prolific authors - his Sherlock Holmes stories propelled him to fame. 

But The Strand was not just Holmes. 

It published many brilliant stories and essays, some by authors that are still famous, others by writers waiting to be re-discovered by a new generation of readers. 

'The Best of The Strand' is a carefully edited selection of some of the finest work to appear in the magazine. 

The second collection includes 13 fiction and non-fiction pieces: 

Sherlock Holmes and the Noble Bachelor by Arthur Conan Doyle 
Illustrated Interviews: M. Curie, The Discoverer of Radium 
Stories from the Diary of a Doctor: The Wrong Prescription 
Stories of the Victoria Cross: Told by Those who have Won it 
An Eighteenth Century Juliet 
The Evolution of Cricket 
The Great Ruby Robbery: A Detective Story 
Behind the Speaker’s Chair 
Wife or Helpmeet?: Study of a Woman 
Remarkable Accidents 
A Tramp's Romance 
Crimes and Criminals: Coiners and Coining 

The aim, like that if the original magazine, is to inform and entertain. 

The collection is introduced by the historian Andrew Roberts, explaining The Strand's significance and its enduring legacy.
