Who is it, you ask? Why, it's elementary! Sherlock Holmes, the famous gumshoe of 221B Baker Street.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is NOT the Complete Sherlock Holmes Nov. 10 2011
By Nemo
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
Read the title carefully on the picture: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Other Stories. Though advertised as the Complete Sherlock Holmes, there are only 44 of the 56 short stories from The Canon edited in this book. The four Sherlock Holmes novels are included as well. "Other Stories" refer to other Sherlock holmes stories from The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes and His Last Bow. The stories from The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes are missing in this edition. It is a nice book to have but certainly not for those who are looking for a book with the complete Canon. The advertisement should be corrected to reflect what it's content is really.

5.0 out of 5 stars a gift for my husband Dec 12 2012
By T. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
Sherlock Holmes is NOT the well-tailored, stoic, rigid master of mysterious prestidigitation as many movies and new media display him as.

He is in fact much like the Robert Downey Jr presentation of the inebriate, quick wry-witted man of intrigue. My husband, has been so tired of the prim-statuesque version...and was thrilled to see the newer personifications in the most recent Sherlock Holmes movies...

So what makes the PERFECT gift, for the classic REAL 'Sherlock Holmes' lover??

THIS BOOK of course!

The binding is gorgeous, the image pressing on the cover is exquisite, and classic. My husband will be flabbergasted when he opens this on Christmas morning!!!

I highly recommend this to ANYONE who loves a good wit, and a good mystery!

The book was everything I expected, I received it in plastic wrap, the leather was the best. I was very excited when it arrived, I tore off the plastic and immediately started to read. I've always heard about Sherlock Holmes but never had a chance to read any of Conan Doyle's novels.

I got this as a gift for my sister, a junior in high school. She absolutely adores it! In addition to Sherlock Holmes being a wonderfully written, diverting book, this one looks super pretty. It is beautifully bound. My sister is actually showing it off to her friends as the "best present she has ever gotten!"

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

These are the first twelve short stories about the most famous detective in fiction. They were written in the 1890s when illumination came from fire (candles, oil lamps, and gas). Local travel was by horse or foot. No telephones. Technology has advanced but human nature remains the same. The character of `Sherlock Holmes' was inspired by Doctor Joseph Bell, the famous medical professor in Edinburgh Scotland. Reading the original stories reminds you how good they are, much better than the many imitators. Greed is the motive for most of these stories. I wonder how many were adapted from long forgotten true crime cases?

*.A Scandal in Bohemia. A big, tall man visits Holmes on a secret mission. This nobleman is in a photograph with an actress, and this can endanger an arranged dynastic marriage. Holmes is given £1,000 for expenses [a small fortune then]. Holmes uses a trick to find a hidden valuable object.
*.The Red-Headed League. A man with blazing red hair visits Holmes with his problem of a lost well-paying job. Holmes visits his shop on a side street. A watch at night catches the burglar and saves the bank its fortune in French gold. Holmes explains his deductions. A man who works for half-wages?
*.A Case of Identity. A young woman wants to find a missing fiancé who disappeared before their wedding. Holmes figures out the fraud and why it was done. The law can't touch this scoundrel. [The impressions of a typewriter can identify each unique machine.]

*.The Boscombe Valley Mystery. Charles McCarthy was found dead by a lake, his son James was arrested as a suspect. Holmes thinks the son is innocent, but has a secret. Holmes studies the crime scene and collects the clues, then identifies the murderer. James was acquitted, a confession did not have to be used. Justice was served, not the law.
*.The Five Orange Pips. A young man visits Holmes for advice. He tells what happened to his uncle and father. Now he received the same message. Can Holmes save him and catch those responsible. Or will they answer to a higher power?
*.The Man With the Twisted Lip. Kate Whitney visits Dr. Watson about her missing husband, an opium addict. Watson finds her husband, then joins Holmes in a search for Neville St. Clair. Only a professional beggar could know what happened to him! Holmes succeeds in locating the missing man.

*.The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. A man lost his hat and a goose in a street fight. Can the owner be found? The goose was cooked, the rightful owner received a replacement. Will an innocent man be convicted for a theft? No. Holmes shows mercy.
*.The Adventure of the Speckled Band. A young woman consults Holmes about her fears, her older sister died earlier. Why was her bedroom changed? What makes her stepfather so fierce? [Mad as a hatter?] Helen's life is saved, the guilty person falls into his own trap.
*.The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb. A murderous attack severed the thumb of a young hydraulic engineer. He tells his story to Holmes. He was offered high pay for a few hours of work in secret. He had a narrow escape! Holmes takes him to Scotland Yard and they go to Eyford. But it is too late, the criminals escaped capture.

*.The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor. Lord St. Simon asks Holmes for advice on a runaway bride. Was there anything in her past to cause this? Holmes solves this mystery by following a back trail. [What does this say about the nobility?]
*.The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet. A tall, portly man visits Holmes. This banker loaned £50,000 to a nobleman who gave a beryl coronet as security. After it partly disappeared a relative was arrested. Can Holmes recover the lost gems and solve the crime? Yes, he explains what was overlooked. The guilty party will soon receive a more than sufficient punishment.
*.The Adventure of the Copper Beeches. A young woman asks for advice on changing jobs, she is offered very good pay. But she must cut her long hair short. Weeks later she sent a telegram to Holmes asking for help. Holmes arrives to solve the mystery. There is a happy ending.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for budding collectors June 6 2014
By Rodney Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
Never knew I would love Sherlock Holmes. The book itself is gorgeous, the gold leaf pages are amazing and the cloth ribbon is very sturdy. My only complaint would be that the image on the front is a sticker, whereas all of the other books in the series have embossed images, but that isn't enough to keep me from giving 5 stars
