'Here are the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle as they first appeared in the British magazine The Strand. This periodical was the literary sensation of its time, especially with the publication of the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles (which appears in its entirety in this volume), when eager readers lined up outside the magazine's London offices, waiting for each installment as it came off the press.
This edition contains 37 short stories, reproduced in complete facsimile (published in individual volumes as "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes", and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes"), plus the complete novel "The Hound of the Baskervilles."
Today, the collection of the original issues of The Strand containing the Holmes stories is a rare collector's piece. It is brought to you now, complete and unabridged, comprising a total of well over 600 pages, providing the undying excitement and fascination of each and every Sherlock Holmes adventure.'
