The picture does no justice. I really like this product and have uploaded 2 pictures to show what it really looks like. It has that new book smell, thin pages, and it feels nice.
The Absolute Best COMPLETE Sherlock Holmes Collection!
33 people found this helpful.
Remember to look closely at the cover of all these "complete" Sherlock Holmes books. With the wonders of capitalistically fueled competition, each edition of all 4 novels and 56 short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is beginning to look more and more similar. Not all are created quite as equal as one would think, however. Read on to find out more.

You can never go wrong with Sherlock Holmes.. Die hard fan here.. So much so that i have read the entire collection atleast 10 times now.. It never ceases to amaze me still.. Wife is an avid reader and goes "Why would you read it like a text book trying to cramp it up for some exam".. Well, what does she know? 😀
The best edition thus far released digitally

I'll refrain from reviewing the content of the stories here because, quite frankly, better people than me have done so in the past, both on an off Amazon.
Best single edition of entire canon: The Complete Sherlock Holmes (Collector's Library)

This is a review of one particular edition:
I like a good mystery and I especially love the Victorian ...
I never read Sherlock Holmes. Mostly I read history, political science or economics. But when I read fiction, I like a good mystery and I especially love the Victorian era. In fact, I never even watched the old black and whites with Basil Rathbone that my brother was always glued to. I had NO idea what I was missing. Not being a short story person per se, I've found myself engrossed in every one of the these. Mr. Doyle was a very creative, imaginative and prolific writer and while he's not the only one, I personally believe him to be the best when it comes to the short ones which I usually find boringly unimaginative and rarely read. Not so here. I absolutely Love this book and found myself as engrossed in reading them as my brother did in watching them. I don't have a favorite because I like them all and can see why some people have read them again. They are that good!
Elementary, my dear reader!

Each mystery is unique and exciting to read. We are always the Watson in the story: waiting for the brilliant Holmes to fill us in on the whys and who. For mysteries, these are uncharacteristically well written and give an excellent picture of Victorian times. Though the volume is immense (over 1000 pages), it was missing six stories, so I had to resort to a "real book" rather than my kindle edition to read all of Doyle's masterpieces. If you enjoy the PBS Sherlock Holmes series, these story details are lurking ever in the background and certainly enhance the viewing.
but also with my somewhat old-fashioned contemporaries such as Ivan Doig and Amitav Ghosh — a good tale is still a good tale
My father gave Doubleday's two volumes of the Holmes stories to me and my younger brother one Christmas when we were young. I read both books through when I was about 12, maybe 13. When my brother finished Vol I, I reread all those stories at night by flashlight under the covers.
