Doran Co. (US). The manuscript of the preface written by Arthur Conan Doyle was titled: Mr. Sherlock Holmes and his Friends. Preface, by Arthur Conan Doyle. The Adventure of the Illustrious Client.

This volume, authorized by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate, contains all 4 full-length novels and all 56 short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes. At over a thousand pages, the weighty tome is a perfect gift for budding amateur sleuths, and it is an ideal companion for a long stay on a desert island (or a leisurely trip through the English countryside). The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes should include 12 stories, but this ebook only has two included: Marazin Stone & Thor Bridge.

The Adventure of the Illustrious Client. So it was that at last I obtained permission to put on record what was, in some ways, the supreme moment of my friend's career. Both Holmes and I had a weakness for the Turkish bath. It was over a smoke in the pleasant lassitude of the drying-room that I have found him less reticent and more human than anywhere else.

The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone - MAZA. The Problem of Thor Bridge - THOR.

Awene
The stories are of course top notch, a legible typeface was used, the book is bound nicely with apparently high quality paper, good cover art, and some good pen and ink drawings that relate to the stories. The bad. . . There is no table of contents, and the stories start on the same page the previous story ended on, even if there is only enough room for the title. Without story names on the top of each page within the story, this makes finding any particular story difficult unless you just read them straight through and use a book mark. This was disappointing and irritating, since the book is priced comparable to its competitors (I made my own TOC as a bookmark, so I'm keeping the book). ????

I love the quality of the book, but was hoping for illustrations. The description of the book series led me to believe they were in there.

I do love these pocket-sized clothbound books. I have a collection of books with fine bindings, but they can be cumbersome to read or too fancy to be portable.

Good alternative to Kindle. Wish they were bound in the USA rather than China.

A huge deviation from the Victorian/Edwardian era Holmes story's. Doyle is able to keep up with the times here. S.H. is sarcastic, witty, and a PI of the 20th Century. These were written in the era of Black Mask Mystery Magazine, Dashiell Hammett and the new Hardboiled Private Eye of fiction. This is more like the Holmes of the popular BBC series running now. The purist here seem to like the old style Holmes much more (judging by the reviews). I think this collection to be a refreshing break, and a more multi-dimensional Detective.

As others have noted, the stories here aren't up to par with Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes mysteries. If you're a huge Holmes fan, you might find them interesting. Those who haven't yet been introduced to Holmes and Watson should opt for the earlier works.

This is the final set of Sherlock Holmes short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Like the other stories Sherlock seems to be one step ahead of everyone else in finding the solution to the mystery. However, in a unique way of telling some of these stories the narrator is Sherlock Holmes himself and not John Watson as is usually the case.

Long a fan of Doyle's from the time a teacher pit one the Holmes tomes in my hand. One of the masters of first person.

As my previous reviews of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books on Sherlock Holmes, this too was an excellent read. Just when I thought that I had read all of Doyle's writings on him, I happily discovered more. Again, if you are a fan, one never tires of reading about Sherlock Holmes' keen skill at attention to details in solving crimes. This book was no exception! Each story was well developed. I enjoy the fact that I can read one of his stories in one or two sittings. I hope I find more stories. Well done, Doyle!
This is the final collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories. An excellent collection with a few even told by Mr. Holmes himself. The strength of these stories is just as good as the first. I will definitely be revisiting them soon.
