The Legend Of Sherlock Holmes, PPB

Price: $15.95


I must admit, Watson, that you have some power of selection which atones for much which I deplore in your narratives. Your fatal habit of looking at everything from the point of view of a story, instead of as a scientific exercise, has ruined what might have been an instructive and even classical series of demonstrations. Sherlock Holmes Fatal habit or no, Watson's storytelling lives on in this new selection of eleven classic tales, opening with the cliffhanging encounter between Holmes and his archnemesis Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. The stories that follow trace Holmes' adventures in the years after his surprising return, all the way up to his retirement spent keeping bees upon the Sussex Downs. With all-new illustrations and a foreword on the detective's cultural surroundings, this collection brings the stories and their Victorian milieu to life.
