Forming the core of the Sherlock Holmes canon, this set of a dozen stories includes "A Scandal in Bohemia," "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle," "The Red-Headed League," "The Five Orange Pips," "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," and "A Case of Identity." Showing the influence of Edward Gorey and perhaps outsider art, Sophia Martineck renders the sleuth of Baker Street in his traditional deerstalker hat incarnation, but adds a quirky aspect to her illustrations that is all her own.
