Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson and Lestrade face Moriarty, Jabez Wilson and Grimesby Roylott in this collection of 12 stories selected by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself from his 60-story canon. Published between 1891 and 1910, the events they recount occur between 1881 and 1903. The lead-off story The Musgrave Ritual relates an adventure that Holmes had before he met Watson, and is one of the rare stories narrated by Holmes himself. The Speckled Band, The Five Orange Pips, The Reigate Squire, A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red-Headed League, The Final Problem, The Empty House, The Devil's Foot, The Dancing Men, The Priory School, the book ends with The Second Stain which mentions Holmes's professional career retirement in 1903. This sumptuous and heavyweight new full price volume is superbly illustrated on every page, mostly by Sidney Paget who famously illustrated the first appearance of these stories in The Strand Magazine. There are exquisite watercolours of Victorian London - the Strand, the Port, Waterloo Bridge, St Paul's and the Reichenbach Falls and captioned scenes such as the morgue: "There was no powder-blackening on the clothes" and "I held up a warning finger". Exquisitely designed jacket with tipped in illustrations and embossing, 344 sepia coloured beautifully designed pages dripping with colour illustrations. From Barnes & Noble America, new, full price.
