Recommended: These short stories were written by Arthur Conan Doyle between 1892 and 1905, and originally published in The Strand Magazine. Now loved with recent portrayals of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in the BBC series, and Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law in movies.

Remarkably, Sidney Page was, in fact, commissioned for the Sherlock Holmes illustrations in error by the editors of The Strand, who thought they were hiring Sidney’s brother Walter, who had illustrated “King Solomon’s Mines” and “Treasure Island”. You can find The Original IllustratedSherlockHolmes in hardcover, paperback, audiobook, or for Kindle all over on Amazon.

Circumstantial evidence is occasionally very convincing, as when you find a trout in the milk, to quote Thoreau’s example.” Your niece, when you had, as she thought, gone to your room, slipped down and talked to her lover through the window which leads to the stable lane.

I've loved the Holmes stories ever since I encountered “The Speckled Band,” included here, in my school text. The template of the “great detective” who is all brain, just as the first-person narrator and friend, John Watson has plenty of heart.

My favorite stories within include “A Scandal in Bohemia” (which features the rare person who could match wits with Holmes and win, Irene Adler), “The Red-Headed League,” “The Five Orange Pips”--and yes, “The Speckled Band.” The Hound of the Baskerville is the most famous Sherlock Holmes novel, and certainly one of the best, the spookiest and most atmospheric, set in 1889 in the eerie moors of Devonshire.

Right from the beginning we're given a demonstration of Holmes gifts when, from a walking stick left behind by a visitor, Holmes is able to deduce a wealth of details about the man, down to the breed of his dog. Add a centuries old manor inherited by the young Sir Henry Baskerville along with a centuries old family curse involving a demon hound that has seemingly killed the previous squire, a butler and housekeeper of the manor with secrets, an escaped murderer loose upon the moor, and several suspicious neighbors: Franklin, a litigious crank with an estranged daughter, the mysterious Stapletons--and you have quite a delicious brew served up.

Thus do the first words of the Introduction recall to mind the setting of Doyle's famous tales of mystery, intrigue, and the triumph of deductive reasoning. Few remain unacquainted with Holmes and his singular adventures, unraveling this most baffling of crimes with the assistance of his trusty companion, Dr. Watson.

We might dare to say that no one would argue the fact the words “detective” and Sherlock Holmes are practically synonymous. He had become so popular as a literary character he quickly overshadowed his creator during the two years the first adventures were published in the Strand Magazine beginning in 1891.

When Doyle eventually “killed” him in 1893, London was thrown into a state of mourning -- men wore black arm bands, vehemently describing the author as a brute and an assassin! Eight years later, Doyle was finally persuaded to resurrect his character and he produced several additional adventures, including the classic “Hound of the Baskerville”.

The original illustrations and a nice faux-leather binding add to the complete package. Great collection of stories that really bring out the entire spectrum of Holmes and his 'dear boy' Watson.

The only thing I would argue is that we are not given All the facts, but most of the time we are given enough information to at least have a theory about whom the guilty party may be. I always find it interesting when Holmes show mercy and decides to show leniency towards the perpetrators, a morally gray area for not offering full-disclosure to the law-men but seeminglyGreat collection of stories that really bring out the entire spectrum of Holmes and his 'dear boy' Watson.

Brilliant, timeless stuff that everyone should read, following in the footsteps of and improving upon Edgar Allan Poe's August Duping. Brilliant, timeless stuff that everyone should read, following in the footsteps of and improving upon Edgar Allan Poe's August Duping.

Every short story in Arthur Conan Doyle’s collection began with Holmes using deductive reasoning. Arthur Conan Doyle sets up the reader from the very onset that Holmes will be using this method to solve the crime of the story.

Arthur Conan Doyle sets up the reader from the very onset that Holmes will be using this method to solve the crime of the story. In the first Sherlock Holmes story, “A Scandal in Bohemia”, Holmes asks Watson how many steps there are leading to his room.

When Dr. Watson cannot provide the answer, Holmes states, “I know that there are seventeen steps, because I have both seen and observed” (3). Although I picked up a few minor hints here or there, or even predict the murderer, I never once was able to put the pieces together like Sherlock Holmes.

As the stories start with a display of Holmes deductive reasoning, they end with it as well. Including The Complete Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskerville, is a classic novel written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 279 pages long (First part of the novel).

The novel talks about the clever detective Sherlock Holmes and all his dangerous adventures, trying to find solutions to all kinds of problems.

I don't know if you can find it in a regular bookstore, but if you can, and you're a big Sherlock Holmes fan, I suggest you get it just so you can say you have the treasury.

I loved these stories as a child, indeed Sherlock Holmes may well be my first childhood hero. They are certainly a great introduction to the late Victorian era, with echoes of the far-flung empire and the intrigues of pre-War Europe setting the wider scene for the crimes of London's dark and busy streets.

House is also a loner like Holmes, with no family, and has only one friend, Wilson. House was known for his abuse of the drug Vi codon. I love Sherlock Holmes stories.

I read a Study in Scarlet, the first story in the book, and rated it separately from this collection of works. Unfortunately, even with my love for the television shows Elementary and Sherlock, there wasn't enough to entice me to continue reading.

Maybe one day I'll pick The Treasury back up again to dive into the creations of Arthur Conan Doyle once more.

I guess there's a good reason Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories have become classics. I bought this years ago at a thrift shop out of curiosity, but I never read it. I guess there's a good reason Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories have become classics.

It's interesting to chart the tropes that flow throughout ACD's work. Nabokov had a theory that every writer had a magic page number that signified the longest good piece they could write.

In terms of Sherlock Holmes, I think the magic number is somewhere in the 40s- the shorter stories are better. Nabokov had a theory that every writer had a magic page number that signified the longest good piece they could write.

The TV series Sherlock will be airing this Sunday on PBS. I enjoyed the original version of the character Sherlock Holmes, and quite a few of the stories were still very thrilling even in a modern age.

An excellent edition with all of Holmes adventures plus “The Hound of the Baskerville”. What is really exciting is the book has the original illustrations by Sidney Page.

It is completely understandable why this is the pop fiction of the Victorian era. The short length of most of the stories makes them an easy and fun read for busy days.
