Since his first appearance in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two paperback volumes, Bantam presents all fifty- six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle's classic hero- a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes's adventures in crime!Volume I includes the early novel A STUDY IN SCARLET, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, THE SIGN OF FOUR presents Holmes's famous 'seven percent solution' and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked- room mystery. Also included are Holmes's feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the chilling THE ADVENTURE OF THE SPECKLED BAND, the baffling riddle of THE MUSGRAVE RITUAL, and the ingeniously plotted THE FIVE ORANGE PIPS, tales that bring to life a Victorian England of horse- drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.

Sherlock Holmes the origin point of the logical detective, and we have Doyle to thank for this. All those that came after, including some superheroes (Batman), owe their greatness to his humble chapter by chapter beginnings. "A Study in Scarlet" is one of the better stories in this collection and it's fun to see the original ones.

I can't wait to read the rest of the stories! I have read "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and loved it. And I have the best edition too. :D
