Descrizione libro Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 254 x 203 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A Study in Scarlet is an 1887 detective novel by British author Arthur Conan Doyle. Written in 1886, the story marks the first appearance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, who would become two of the most famous characters in popular fiction. The book s title derives from a speech given by Holmes, an amateur detective, to his friend and chronicler Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story s murder investigation as his study in scarlet : There s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it. (A study is a preliminary drawing, sketch or painting done in preparation for a finished piece.)The story, and its main characters, attracted little public interest when it first appeared. Only 11 complete copies of the magazine in which the story first appeared, Beeton s Christmas Annual for 1887, are known to exist now and they have considerable value.Although Conan Doyle wrote 56 short stories featuring Holmes, A Study in Scarlet is one of only four full-length novels in the original canon. The novel was followed by The Sign of the Four, published in 1890. A Study in Scarlet was the first work of detective fiction to incorporate the magnifying glass as an investigative tool.Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 – 7 July 1930) was an Irish-Scots writer and physician, most noted for creating the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and writing stories about him which are generally considered milestones in the field of crime fiction.He is also known for writing the fictional adventures of a second character he invented, Professor Challenger, and for popularising the mystery of the Mary Celeste. He was a prolific writer whose other works include fantasy and science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction and historical novels.Joseph Bell,FRCSE (2 December 1837 – 4 October 1911) was a Scottish lecturer at the medical school of the University of Edinburgh in the 19th century. He is perhaps best known as an inspiration for the literary character Sherlock Holmes.,.illustrator George Hutchinson (1891-1893). Codice libro della libreria APC9781537017686

Descrizione libro London: Ward Lock. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Fair. 5" x 7.5". Hard Cover. Very Good / Fair. Unknown. N/A. 5" x 7.5". Very nice conditiion but has several owner's stamps inside front cover. Front panel of DJ is mostly complete but there is a triangle about 1" x 1" missing by spine and about 1/3 of the spine and the back of the DJ are missing. There is a handsome illustration of Holmes in a dressing gown or smoking jacket, with a pipe in his mouth. He has a letter in one hand and is holding the lapel of his jacket with the other. The face recalls the nobler kind of bust with a high brow and well delineated features. The price of this book is already almost what I paid for it. I can't lower it any further. Includes an article by Dr. Joseph Bell, the inspiration for Sherlock Holmes, about Conan Doyle's writing, which was originally published in The Bookman. Codice libro della libreria 5060
