This is not a professionally published book. I guess the Conan Doyle stories are in the public domain and can be printed without permission from his estate, because someone saw fit to re-print 'The Adventures' through CreateSpace. The text in this book isn't even justified, giving it an unprofessional look. Furthermore, the large dimensional size of the book makes the pages very full of text and at least to me uncomfortable to read. In short, not a very professional reprint.

I love Sherlock Holmes. It is a challenge in that I am American, and the book is written by a British author in the 1800's, and there is different vocabulary being used. Nothing I can't figure out, though. Fun!

In this, the first collection of Holmes's stories, the detective uses his uncanny skills to rescue a king from blackmail, to capture an ingenious bank robber, and to save an innocent son accused of parricide... Confronted with cases that either seem obvious or hopelessly obscure, Holmes uses his encyclopedic knowledge and preternatural powers of deduction to unearth the truth.

Gorgeous black-background hardcover with gold lettering and borders, this Barnes & Noble classics series looks beautiful on a shelf; inviting and generously sized, it's a great read. There is nothing better than a rollicking good Sherlock Holmes mystery and this first book plunges the reader into the depths of Doyle's tales. Featuring "A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red-Headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man with the Twisted Lip, The Blue Carbuncle, The Speckled Band, The Engineer's Thumb, The Noble Bachelor, The Beryl Coronet, and The Copper Breeches," this twelve tale book will keep you guessing.

A classic.

This is classic Doyle at his best. There are also fine black & white illustrations. However the print is rather small. Excellent reading.

This selection of short stories featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes first appeared in The Strand Magazine between 1891 and 1893. Since that time, COnan DOyle's brilliant creation has become one of the best-loved of all fictional characters and the romance and atmosphere of his adventures remain as popular today as when they were first published.
