I'm looking for a Sherlock Holmes book published by Readers Digest Association back in the 1980-1990's as part of a subscription set. It has a 'library leather-look' cover with the book title, silouette of Sherlock Holmes, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in gold 'gilt' on the cover. The title and author and Reader's Digest in 'gilt' on the spine.

The specific book I am looking for is 'The Case Book' -- I am having a hard time finding it in this edition, or even if it exists (although I have teasing rumors that it does!).

If anyone can help me locate one, it would be worth a couple of credits to the person who has one or can obtain and send one to me.

Linda, are you sure it's The Casebook of? The reason I ask is that I'm finding Reader's Digest Association lists for The Adventures of, The Further Adventures of, The Memoirs of, and A Study in Scarlet with The Hound of the Baskervilles, but I'm not finding The Casebook.

See, for example, this from getCITED.org:  http://www.getcited.org/mbrx/PT/2/MBR/10015178
