Overview

Here are the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle as they first appeared in the famed British magazine The Strand.  This periodical was the literary sensation of its time, especially with the publication of the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles (which appears in its entirety in this volume), when eager readers lined up outside the magazine's London offices, waiting for each installment as it came off press.
This edition contains 37 short stories, reproduced in complete facsimile (published in individual volumes as "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes", and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes"), plus the complete novel The Hound of the Baskervilles.
 
Today, the collection of the original issues of The Strand containing the Holmes stories is a rare collector's piece.  It is brought to you now, complete and unabridged, comprising a total of well over 600 pages, providing the undying excitement and fascination of each and every Sherlock Holmes Adventure.
 
The drawings of Sidney Paget illustrate the stories--illustrations as immortal as the stories themselves.  Paget produced more than 350 Sherlock Holmes illustrations, and it was his depictions which gave Holmes visual reality for everyone, which projected him throughout the world, and which today still provide the mold of the original hero in production on stage, screen and television.

Meet the Author

Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. After a rigorous Jesuit education he trained to become a doctor at Edinburgh University. Eventually he set up in medical practice in Southsea, and during the quiet spells between patients he turned his hand to writing. Although Sherlock Holmes was Doyle's greatest creation, he was more proud of his historical novels such as Micah Clarke and Sir Nigel. Towards the end of his life he devoted much of his time to his belief in spiritualism, using his writings as a means of providing funds to enable him to carry out activities in this field. He died in 1930.

Biography

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. After nine years in Jesuit schools, he went to Edinburgh University, receiving a degree in medicine in 1881. He then became an eye specialist in Southsea, with a distressing lack of success. Hoping to augment his income, he wrote his first story, A Study in Scarlet. His detective, Sherlock Holmes, was modeled in part after Dr. Joseph Bell of the Edinburgh Infirmary, a man with spectacular powers of observation, analysis, and inference. Conan Doyle may have been influenced also by his admiration for the neat plots of Gaboriau and for Poe's detective, M. Dupin. After several rejections, the story was sold to a British publisher for £25, and thus was born the world's best-known and most-loved fictional detective. Fifty-nine more Sherlock Holmes adventures followed.

Once, wearying of Holmes, his creator killed him off, but was forced by popular demand to resurrect him. Sir Arthur -- he had been knighted for this defense of the British cause in his The Great Boer War -- became an ardent Spiritualist after the death of his son Kingsley, who had been wounded at the Somme in World War I. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in Sussex in 1930.

    Introduction to Mystery

    30 years ago, I got a copy of this book for my birthday. I'd become interested in Sherlock Holmes through the movies, mainly the Basil Rathbone films. I was surprised to find that the real Holmes had a rich literary legacy. Before I got the book, I'd never even heard of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Every fictional detective, from Sam Spade to Batman to Harry Potter, stands in the shadow of Sherlock Holmes. The pages are exact replicas of the original pages of THE STRAND magazine, where the first 37 Holmes short stories and THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES were published. Reading the book is like browsing trough a favorite magazine. The original STRAND issues are priceless collector's items. As a 15-year-old, I enjoyed the Holmes stories for their intrigue and their ingenious solutions. As an adult, I've returned to them time and again for their wonderful atmosphere. Doyle makes victorian London come alive. We feel that we know every back alley, every bustling market, every cobblestone. We are drawn into a world of mystery, where the gaslit streets are shrouded in fog and the game is always afoot. this world is made even more alive by Sidney Paget's genre-defining illustrations. This book is far from complete. It omits A STUDY IN SCARLET, THE SIGN OF FOUR, THE VALLEY OF FEAR and the short stories in HIS LAST BOW and THE CASEBOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES. In one respect, though, it is complete: it chronicles the efforts of illustrator Sidney Paget. Paget did for Holmes what Tenniel did for Alice and what Mary Grandpre is doing for Harry Potter. He established a visual reference to a unique character. THE ILLUSTRATED SHERLOCK HOLMES is a valuable addition to any mystery fan's library.
