Sherlock Holmes remains one of the most celebrated movie characters, played more recently by Robert Downey Jnr (Iron Man) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr Strange). Here though, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes features Arthur Conan Doyle's first 12 stories, published in the Strand Magazine in the 1890s. They establish the iconic characteristics of both Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, his trusty companion whose wide-eyed observations report the antics of the great detective. In stories such as "A Scandal in Bohemia", "The Red-Headed League" The Adventure of the Speckled Band" and "The Man with the Twisted Lip" we see an idiosyncratic Holmes with immense powers of deduction often called upon because the flat-footed police are unable to solve the intricate, diplomatic and occasionally delicate mysteries brought to his door. AUTHOR: Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. As a medical student he was so impressed by his professor's powers of deduction that he was inspired to create the illustrious and much-loved figure Sherlock Holmes. Holmes is known for his keen power of observation and logical reasoning, which often astounds his companion Dr. Watson. However, Conan Doyle became increasingly interested in spiritualism, leaving him keen to explore more fantastical elements in his stories. Conan Doyle was a prolific writer of non-fiction, history, plays, poems, short stories and novels, and whatever the subject, his vibrant and remarkable characters have breathed life into all of his work, engaging readers throughout the decades. SELLING POINTS: . Deluxe foiled and embossed cover, with gilded edges. . Gift editions of much-loved classics. . Accessible and timeless unabridged text. .
