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.

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.

Wonderful adventures.

Some 560+ pages in length, encompassing 12 adventures and 11 memoirs, this is a fantastic book. The hardback version from Sterling Classic has a nice dust cover and a sash built into the spine to use as a book mark.

Ultimate Holmes/Book lovers Box Set. Review on the physical copy's.

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.

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.

The very best Kindle version of the Holmes canon

If you haven't read the Holmes books and you love mysteries you really should give them a go. These might be older stories and books, but they are pretty timeless. Absent is any of the flowery Victorian phrasing, these are told in a straightforward way that should be more closely emulated by the scores of writers following in Doyle's footsteps. there are a few very minor formatting issues with the digital transformation, just the usual stuff though. Some times a capital I turns into a T, etc. Still it's free and the stories and books are all here. A must for any mystery buff!
