|Arthur Conan Doyle. Brian Busby, intro|
|Pages/Publication Date:||485 / 2016|
The third novel to feature Sherlock Holmes originally appeared in serial form in the Strand Magazine in 1901-02. The mystery of a seemingly supernatural beast lurking on Dartmoor in Devon has thrilled readers ever since, and The Hound of the Baskervilles has become the first novel most people think of when Holmes is mentioned. Published ten years earlier, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes collected the first dozen Holmes short stories (which had also originally appeared in the Strand), and includes Arthur Conan Doyle's personal favorite, "The Adventure of the Speckled Band." Paired as natural companions to each other, these classic mysteries are bound in fine cloth editions and presented in a handsome illustrated slipcase.
