about

The Return of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 13 Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, originally published in 1903-1904. 
 
This was the first Holmes collection since 1893, when Holmes had "died" in The Final Problem. Having published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901–1902 (although setting it before Holmes' death) Doyle came under intense pressure to revive his famous character. 
 
The first story is set in 1894 and has Holmes returning in London and explaining the period from 1891–94, a period called "The Great Hiatus" by Sherlockian enthusiasts. 
 
Also of note is Watson's statement in the last story of the cycle that Holmes has retired, and forbids him to publish any more stories.
