Here are the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle as they first appeared in the famed British magazine The Strand. This periodical was the literary sensation of its time, especially with the publication of the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles (which appears in its entirety in this volume), when eager readers lined up outside the magazine's London offices, waiting for each installment as it came off press.This edition contains 37 short stories, reproduced in complete facsimile (published in individual volumes as "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes", and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes"), plus the complete novel The Hound of the Baskervilles. Today, the collection of the original issues of The Strand containing the Holmes stories is a rare collector's piece. It is brought to you now, complete and unabridged, comprising a total of well over 600 pages, providing the undying excitement and fascination of each and every Sherlock Holmes Adventure. The drawings of Sidney Paget illustrate the stories--illustrations as immortal as the stories themselves. Paget produced more than 350 Sherlock Holmes illustrations, and it was his depictions which gave Holmes visual reality for everyone, which projected him throughout the world, and which today still provide the mold of the original hero in production on stage, screen and television.

Sherlock Holmes against the moor and its dark legend

 on November 15, 2017
By Abbigail Holmes
Definitely my favorite Sherlock Holmes adventure. The atmosphere is great, descriptions of the Dartmoor and it's foggy and gloomy weather and strange sounds and dangerous and yet beautiful in some dark beauty way landscape makes a perfect place for the scary legend to be reborn. In the center of all this are a castle and mysterious death of its owner.

A great black beast...

By HMS Warspite
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is surely one of the most popular of his Sherlock Holmes detective stories, pitting the famous detective and his sidekick Dr. Watson against a half-legendary beast who threatens the heir of the Baskerville fortune in a remote village of Devonshire. The story gets the graphic novel treatment here, courtesy of Campfire Classics, adapter J.R. Parks, and illustrator Vinod Kumar.

Holmes and the Gigantic Hound...

 on March 3, 2012
By HMS Warspite
The classic Sherlock Holmes case "The Hound of the Baskervilles" gets the graphic novel treatment in this 2009 production. Ian Edgington does a nice job adapting Conan Doyle's original text, while I.N.J. Culbard's artwork captures the key characters and the dismal Devonshire setting of the novel in a distinctive style.

All of Holmes and Watson for Your Enjoyment

Sherlock Holme's is my favorite fictional character. If you've never experienced these stories, here they are, all in one spot. If you regard them as old friends, you'll be happy to own this collection and to revisit it on occasion. If you don't yet know Holmes and Dr. Watson, rather than get it right now, head for the library and start out with the Adventures. If you find yourself hooked as I was as a youngster, go for it. These are great classics to help you escape into your imagination. Enjoy.

The last heir of the Baskerville family, Sir Henry Baskerville travels to this dark land to claim his inheritance the family estate. His uncle Sir Charles Baskerville was found dead on the grounds of Baskerville Hall. Everyone blames his death on the ghostly hound rumored to have cursed the Baskerville family.

I envy anyone who has not read this novella.

This is Doyle's longest and most complete story. We get to know several characters besides Holmes and Watson. Doyle describes Dartmoor and the Grimpen Mire with tantalizing details.

Cool Graphic Novel - A Good Gift for Teens!

 on August 5, 2017
By Mike
This is a really cool graphic novel version of the famous Sherlock Holmes novel. The printing was a little dark, but other than that it's very good. It reads fast. This would make an excellent gift for teens or anyone who likes Sherlock Holmes.

Not TV Sherlock

 on October 22, 2017
By Veracruz Mama
This is such a beautifully written thriller. So, so very much better than the superficial TV and movie versions of Holmes and Watson. Those adaptations are so bizarre and wrong. They are, well, . . . criminal. The real deal is nothing less than literary salvation. If you've never read this book, take a couple of hours and lose yourself in the damp, dark, foggy moor of the Hound of the Baskervilles.

Old school detective story

 on August 11, 2016
By William T. Lodge
If you want to start with Holmes, start here. Many old school stories don't hold up well, this does. For cultural literacy reasons alone it's worth the time (it's a quick read) but it's also a good story. Call it up on the Kindle for a buck and enjoy the bus ride.
