|Arthur Conan Doyle. Daniel Stashower, foreword.|
|Pages/Publication Date:||1200 / 2013|
Between the handsome houndstooth covers of this slipcased collection you will find every story Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about his great detective. Here is A Study in Scarlet (the first Sherlock Holmes book, published in 1887 to something less than wide acclaim), followed by the short stories in The Strand Magazine that made Holmes a household word, the novels The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Valley of Fear, and the final stories of the 1920s. Daniel Stashower—proud member of the Baker Street Irregulars and biographer of Conan Doyle—gives us both a knowledgeable foreword and a detailed chronology of the author's life and times.
