Sherlock Holmes is the greatest fictional detective in the world. The hero of 56 short stories and four novels, he is so convincing that letters still arrive at 221b Baker Street seeking his help, and when it was thought that he had died in his clash with the evil Professor Moriarty ('the Napoleon of Crime') young men in London wore black armbands. This box contains the complete Sherlock Holmes canon and each of the six books has an Afterword by David Stuart Davies, formerly Editor of Sherlock Magazine.
This luxury boxed set containing all of Conan Doyle's novels and stories: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Valley of Fear, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet and At the Sign of the Four, and The Return of Sherlock Holmes and His Last Bow.Biografía del autor:
Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. After a rigorous Jesuit education, at Stonyhurst College in Lancashire, he trained to be a doctor at Edinburgh University. Eventually he set up in medical practice in Southsea and, during the quiet periods between patients, he turned his hand to writing. Although Sherlock Holmes was Doyle's greatest creation, he believed his historical novels such as Micah Clarke and The White Company were of greater literary quality. He also created the irascible Professor Challenger in The Lost World and the comic French soldier Brigadier Gerard who appeared in a series of short stories. Doyle was knighted in 1902. Towards the end of his life he devoted much of his time to his belief in Spiritualism, using his writings as a means of providing funds to support his activities in this field. He died in 1930.
