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.

Sherlock Holmes leather bound book Feb. 13 2013
By 18wheeler4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
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.

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!

Sister loves it May 27 2013
By D.elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
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!"

PRODUCT QUALITY REVIEW/COMPARISON TO BARNES & NOBLE EDITIONS Nov. 7 2014
By Sara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Leather Bound
I'm not going to review the stories themselves as I'm still reading them, but also because there is already a plethora of reviews and information available everywhere.

I just thought it would be worth mentioning that the cameo image on the cover is a sticker and is not actually embossed on the book. I own four other books from this Canterbury Classics collection and they are all beautiful editions with embossed artwork on the cover, so I was a bit disappointed to see that this one wasn't on par with the others even though the artwork on this book is very simple in comparison to the rest - some of which even have foiling and more detail. These aren't the types of books made for toting around as it is "delicate" and too large to carry comfortably in hand or in a bag, so I'm not too worried about the sticker coming off as the book sits in a bookcase with my other CC books when I'm not reading it. The sticker does seem thick and hasn't peeled even though I bought a used copy and have had it for a few months. I noticed that it was a sticker because it wasn't perfectly aligned and upon closer inspection, the edges of the sticker were noticeable. Like I said, I'm not too bothered by it anymore but perhaps others may be. With that said, the quality of the book is nice overall. The spine and binding feel solid and feels like it will hold up well even with heavy use, as long as the book isn't abused of course.

As I mentioned before, the artwork on this book isn't very impressive in terms of quality and design, but I chose this edition because I simply wanted it to fit in with my other CC books. If the sticker bothers you, you find the artwork too bland, or you just aren't anal about collections and aligning your books perfectly on a shelf, there are much nicer-looking editions from other collections. I believe Barnes & Noble has a Sherlock Holmes book (I could be wrong). I have three books from the B&N collections and they are very pretty too. However, the quality isn't AS good. The corners of the B&N books wear faster even with careful handling and one of my books arrived (new, sealed) with light scuffing on the corners and grey edges on the pages rather than guilded edges like the rest of the books. The books are also noticeable lighter, the covers don't feel as solid and because they are thick books as well, I feel like the weight cause the spines to feel more delicate. You can open the CC books flat brand new whereas some of the B&N books make a little cracking sound if you do that. The B&N books are definitely going to get creasing on the outside quicker. The B&N's books are a little bit cheaper at roughy $10 brand new, you can find them cheaper though, new or used. If you want them new, I suggest looking at them in-store. One of my B&N books is an Anne Rice collection and is thicker than the other two I own, but I don't have the same issues with that one as I do with the others. Overall, they are decent considering the price (lookout for price gougers, don't overpay retail value because they aren't worth it). I just wouldn't suggest loaning them out to people who aren't enthusiastic and careful about books because they are quite delicate.

Between the two, I prefer Canterbury Classics and I sometimes see them at Costco, particularly around the holidays (they make very lovely gifts, by the way). But you've been warned, you may be a bit disappointed with the sticker issue of this particular book. But don't let it put you off from buying other books from Canterbury Classics because the rest are much nicer in terms of quality and appearance and don't seem to have the "hit or miss" issue that the Barnes & Noble collections do.

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
