Product Information : The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle

Manufacturer's product description

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the Strand magazine in which they were first published and won immense popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The detective is at the height of his powers and the volume is full of famous cases including The Red-Headed League The Blue Carbuncle and The Speckled Band. Although Holmes gained a reputation for infallibility Conan Doyle showed his own realism and feminism by having the great detective defeated by Irene Adler - a woman - in the very first story A Scandal in Bohemia.
