ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES


ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES

ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE    Book Number: 88392    Product format: Hardback

With bright yellow edged pages, this US first edition is on heavy quality paper and features throughout attractive artwork by Sophia Martineck to entice younger readers into this collector's edition of a classic. The collection features 12 gripping crime stories - A Scandal In Bohemia, The Red-Headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man With the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, The Adventure of the Copper Beeches. The first striking double page artwork is of three men in a boat, at night on the Thames, gaslit and with a full moon, Big Ben and the outline of the Palace of Westminster. The next is of Holmes and Watson at home at 221b Baker Street, a bookcase laden with leather-bound books and a drinks trolley full, Holmes smoking his pipe in front of a blazing fireside. The lovely clear text on bright white quality paper is studded with top hats, stout boots, an eye mask, potions and bottles and scenes from the stories to help youngsters visualise the Victorian setting and remain involved with the stories, follow clues and remember fine details. Page 129 has a man falling headlong into the dark Thames and page 134 a scarred beggar on his knees. Sometimes the illustrations just trip quietly down the edge of a page. You can smell the ink on this gorgeous mint publication, 320pp, 7½" x 9". Save £10.
