Overview

His Last Bow: A Reminiscence of Sherlock Holmes (Wisehouse Classics Edition - With Original Illustrations) by Arthur Conan Doyle

His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of previously published Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, including the titular short story, "His Last Bow. The War Service of Sherlock Holmes" (1917). The collection's first US edition adjusts the anthology's subtitle to Some Later Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes. All editions contain a brief preface, by "John H. Watson, M.D.," that assures readers that as of the date of publication (1917), Holmes is long retired from his profession of detective but is still alive and well, albeit suffering from a touch of rheumatism.

This was the only free version of the entire eight-story book that I could find.  It isn't available as an Apple iBook or as an Amazon Kindle book.  Be aware that it is easy to find The Last Bow as a free, stand-alone story, but not , as I said, the eight-story collection.   With that being said, I'll now explain my 3-star rating.  If it wasn't for the fact of it being the only free version that I could find, I would only give it 1-star.  The formatting is atrocious and there are numerous misspelled words.  Some words are so bad that you actually need the context to decipher what they were supposed to be!  So, if you're a cheapskate like me and want it for free, then be aware that you'll have to put up with these things to save the money. The stories themselves are good--typical Sherlock Holmes.  Nothing out of the ordinary or special, but having read eight out of the nine Holmes books (can't find a free copy of The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes), I can say that they are all good, fun reading and that this volume is no exception.
