Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tales are rightly ranked among the seminal works of mystery and detective fiction. The handsome packaging and splendid illustrations in this limited edition collection more than befit that classic status. Included are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces—from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes to The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes—brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning. By his side is Dr. John Watson, his steadfast assistant and our trusty narrator. This set is a must-have for every discriminating bibliophile and Sherlock Holmes fan.
This collector’s edition includes:
• A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Valley of Fear, His Last Bow, Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, and The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes

This is the way ebooks should be designed! Not only is the a complete collection of Holmes fiction, it is presented with generous illustrations throughout. And best and most important of all, you can locate anything you wish to read or review quickly and simply. Most other similar Holmes ebook compendium collections are terribly designed with little or no illustrative material, and worst of all they load with terrible delays, and often inaccurately. This book, unlike many other classic ebbooks, was put together with care and grace. My favorite edition of Sherlock Holmes in ebook format.
Handsomely Designed, Well Formatted, and Complete

This, The Complete Sherlock Holmes: Volumes 1-4 (The Heirloom Collection), isn't the absolute best Sherlock Holmes collection, but it is extremely good. Most importantly, it does contain all 4 novels and 56 short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, though not always in the exact same order as other editions -- making it a little confusing, when comparing different editions, to determine if all the stories are actually included (and they are). Design wise, the graphic presentation (font choices, layout, etc) of this "heirloom edition" is superb -- making it clearly better in that regard than perhaps any of the "complete" Sherlock Holmes books currently available. The color illustrations aren't bad either, but there really aren't all that many for such a large book, filled with so many classic tales.
Entire Set of Works and Working TOC

When searching for a good copy I noticed two things from the reviews: (1) a lot of options didn't actually have the ENTIRE collection, (2) TOC and organization was poor in most options. Being the first to review this item, I'll offer my opinion. I hope this helps out anyone looking to purchase this book.
Excellent product, in all regards.

Great bookset, the pictures don't do it justice. I was dubious when I bought it, now I'm absolutely certain it was the right choice.
The Complete Sherlock Homes
Can't go wrong for Sherlock Holmes fans --- the great thing for me is I can have these works in my Kindle and easily have them with me anyplace. Great for evening reading, even passing the time in the doctor's waiting room. I would buy this again.

these CDs don't play in my car CD player. DISAPPOINTED. Wish I had known before.
Good, fun read
Short stories make it easy to grab and read in a sitting. Beware, you may begin exercising your own powers of observation and deduction. Great fun!
