I read this version years ago, but recently read "The Hound of the Baskervilles" in it. I love the two column format and the original illustrations. The older I get the more I appreciate Holmes and Watson. I see the nuances of their relationship and the details of the world around them, rather than just trying to puzzle out the solutions. I think Laurie R. King has had something to do with that as well, enabling me to see Holmes as a man and not just a detecting machine.
