Some brief overview of this book

The extraordinary adventures of the world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes, as faithfully recounted by his comrade, Dr. Watson, have captivated readers of all ages for over a century. The stories blend of heartpounding, fast-paced action and mind-boggling deductive reasoning is as riveting today as it was when first published.

This deluxe illustrated edition contains Sir Arthur Conan Doyles first twelve stories and includes such famous cases as The Red-headed League, in which Holmes uncovers a well-concealed, devilishly clever criminal plot; The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, in which Holmes must trap a jewel thief—with astonishing results; The Adventure of the Speckled Band, in which Holmes and Watson find themselves dealing with treachery, violence, and deadly snakes; and nine more equally thrilling and puzzling mysteries.

Magnificently illustrated with twelve powerful watercolors by award-winning artist Barry Moser, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes features the complete text of the original collection of Doyles short stories and is an ideal introduction to the fascinating world of this mesmerizing detective.

The character of Sherlock Holmes first appeared in 1887 in, A Study in Scarlet.

A few words about book's author

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle KGStJ, DL (22 May 1859 - 7 July 1930) was a Scottish physician and writer.

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 Poes detective, M. Dupin. After several rejections, the story was sold to a British publisher for £25, and thus was born the worlds 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. Author biography courtesy of Penguin Group (USA).
