Oxford Sherlock Holmes

Overview


Any fan of detective fiction knows that there is no substitute in all of literature for a few hours of reading pleasure at 221 B Baker Street. The tobacco in the persian slipper, the piles of monographs and newspaper clippings covering the floor and table, the unanswered correspondence affixed to the mantle with a dagger. What will the next visitor or urgent message bring? Perhaps a request from a mysterious stranger to help prevent "A Scandal in Bohemia." Perhaps Watson will tell us the story, discretely ...

Overview


Any fan of detective fiction knows that there is no substitute in all of literature for a few hours of reading pleasure at 221 B Baker Street. The tobacco in the persian slipper, the piles of monographs and newspaper clippings covering the floor and table, the unanswered correspondence affixed to the mantle with a dagger. What will the next visitor or urgent message bring? Perhaps a request from a mysterious stranger to help prevent "A Scandal in Bohemia." Perhaps Watson will tell us the story, discretely leaving out certain names, of how he and Holmes had to step outside the law to protect a certain royal personage from a blackmailer in "The Case of Charles Augustus Milverton." Or, for a very unusual treat, perhaps Holmes himself, in quiet retirement in Sussex, will tell a tale in his own words as in "The Lion's Mane."
In the more than a century since the publication of the first tale featuring Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet, Arthur Conan Doyle's characters and stories have inspired countless films, plays, pastiches, literary tributes, and tens of thousands of imitations. Now, Oxford is proud to announce The Oxford Sherlock Holmes, the complete works gathered together in nine handsomely bound, meticulously edited volumes. The books themselves are beautiful, and the entire set comes in an attractive display box, perfect for gift-giving.
Beautifully designed, boasting an introduction by a Doyle authority, a chronology, a selected bibliography, and notes, all carefully researched and assembled, this magnificent set will enhance the reading pleasure of readers new to Doyle's work and veterans of Holmsian arcana. A goldmine of reading pleasure, The Oxford Sherlock Holmes is an essential addition to the library of anyone interested in crime fiction.

The complete Sherlock Holmes gathered together in nine handsomely bound, meticulously edited volumes. The books are beautiful, with silk screen covers and a splendid wood etching elegantly embossed on each cover. Each volume contains an introduction by a Doyle authority, a chronology, selected bibliography, and notes, all carefully researched and assembled.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One thing is certain, Sherlockians, put aside your Baring-Gould Annotated, your Folio Society Illustrated-for the time being, the Oxford is the edition to curl up with on a winter's night"--The Chicago Tribune

"An incomparable gift book; or, should you find it impossible to surrender up such treasures, the best of gifts to oneself"--USA Today

"To the true Sherlockian, this will be a treasure; to otherwise diverted detective story fans, it is a rich lode for discovery"--Denver Post

"The complete and authentic adventures of the legendary detective--expertly edited and annotated by a team of Holmes scholars....in a handsome, boxed set....A lovely gift"--The Christian Science Monitor

"Here in nine volumes...are all the adventures of Holmes and Watson. Each book has an introduction, something new and fascinating for even the most devoted Holmesians plus a series of intelligent notes at the back of each volume."--Oxford Times "The Oxford Sherlock Holmes, a new edition of the stories, is a splendid piece of publishing. Nine compact volumes, beautifully produced, each with a stimulating introduction; clear type, accurate texts, a handy chronology, a helpful bibliography. And, most valuable of all, explanatory notes running to 50 pages or more per volume."--John Gross, writing in Sunday Telegraph

Booknews
**** A sweet little set of books. Measuring 5x7.5", any of the nine volumes snuggles comfortably in the hand. The content is by no means small: The Hound..., for example, contains an 18 page introduction by W.W. Robson, a 6 page bibliography and essay, a 7 page chronology of Doyle, 168 pp. of crisp text, and 18 pp. of notes. Each volume carries the 4 page preface by Owen Dudley Edwards, General Editor. He, more than anyone, is responsible for the fastidious excavation of the definitive text. Notes are signalled by a star in the text. This is only jarring when, infrequently, they agglutinate. On balance this is the best practice. A splendid mix of compelling stories and high scholarship. It must displace earlier editions cited in BCL3. A remarkable buy at $100. Annotation c.
