9780140437713: The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (Penguin Classics)

A collection of the most famous cases faced by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's peerless creation

This collection of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes includes many of the famous cases - and great strokes of brilliance - that made the legendary detective one of fiction's most popular creations. With his devoted amanuensis Dr Watson, Holmes emerges from his smoke filled room in Baker Street to grapple with the forces of treachery, intrigue and evil in such cases as 'The Speckled Band', in which a terrified woman begs their help in solving the mystery surrounding her sister's death, or 'A Scandal in Bohemia', which portrays a European king blackmailed by his mistress. In 'Silver Blaze' the pair investigate the disappearance of a racehorse and the violent murder of its trainer, while in 'The Final Problem' Holmes at last comes face to face with his nemesis, the diabolical Professor Moriarty - 'the Napoleon of crime'.

In his introduction to this Penguin Classics edition, Iain Pears discusses characterization, the key themes of the stories and Victorian methods of deduction. This edition also includes a chronology, further reading and explanatory notes by Ed Glinert, author of The London Compendium

From the Publisher:

This edition is printed in specially-designed large type for easier reading, and is printed on non-glare paper.

From the Back Cover:

Venture back in time to Victorian London to join literature's greatest detective team—the brilliant Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant, Dr. Watson—as they investigate a dozen of their best-known cases. Originally published in 1892, this is the first and best collection of stories about the legendary sleuth. It's also the least expensive edition available.Featured tales include several of the author's personal favorites: "A Scandal in Bohemia"—in which a king is blackmailed by a former lover and Holmes matches wits with the only woman to attract his open admiration—plus "The Speckled Band," "The Red-Headed League," and "The Five Orange Pips." Additional mysteries include "The Blue Carbuncle," "The Engineer’s Thumb," "The Beryl Coronet," "The Copper Beeches," and four others.
