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
• Embossed slipcase with magnetic closure
• Four hardcover volumes each featuring a ribbon marker and four-color illustration throughout

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.

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.

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.

A Must Have.......

Stunning and superb box set. Nothing shoddy about this. Gorgeous layout, and amusing artwork. Very heavy,well constructed volumes in a Sherlock motif box with magnetic lid. Does justice to the canon. I have been collecting books for decades and know quality in books when I see it. The volumes come with a colored ribbon which matches the book cover and page edge colors. Each volume differs. Sherlock's image is a raised relief on the covers. Damn nice box set any true book lover will appreciate. Can't wait to re-read the entire Doyle collection again (and I will read these story's in style now!).The Doyle estate symbol of approval is on the box. This somehow makes it even more enjoyable. My set cost about 60 dollars from Amazon. Thomas and Mercer Press, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Even more perfect than expected

I had been waiting over a month to be able to buy this Heirloom Collection, and let me tell you it's worth every cent. The box was in fact bigger than i had expected, but i very much enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes quotes on the side. It's a tiny detail that really brings it together. The 4 Volumes are exceptional. Each Novel contains at least three illustrations and each Short Story contains one illustration. The drawings are so well drawn that they make the stories even more enjoyable than they already are! The package actually arrived in half the time promised (Expected - 6 Days, Arrived - 3 Days). There was only one problem caused by the company which made the books. His Last Bow isn't a Novel, it's a collection of Short Stories. It's written on the back of the 4th Volume as a Novel. It's only a minor detail and shouldn't take away the enjoyable quality of the Stories. Thank You very much Amazon!

"The best sleuth and sidekick ever", in Sir. Arthur Conan Doyles', The Complete Sherlock Holmes Volumes.

Being a Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson super fan I must say that this is probably one of the best books I've read in my whole life. I was really shocked to realize that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had written so many stories of our infamous sleuth and his brilliant sidekick Dr. Watson. It has been a very rewarding experience reading this masterpiece (in my opinion). I have many videos of the old Sherlock Holmes movies, and when reading this book I was able to place in my mind the books to the movies. A tremendous "singular narrative" of the many books of our fantastic private investigator. I will always remain a stimulated reader of this wonderful writer, Sir. Arthur Conan Doyle.

Buy it... I think you won't be disappointed.

I have just begun reading this book but I am already love it. Sherlock Holmes is my absolute fav... however I never new the history of how Sherlock and Watson met! The very fist chapter tells that story well... very interesting and entertaining. I am looking forward to completing ALL 4 volumes. For me... it was worth buying! Yes, they have free books but this one shall bring me months of enjoyment.
