Overview

When Dr. Watson meets Sherlock Holmes for the first time the "consulting detective" immediately demonstrates his inimitable powers of observation, deducing that the doctor has returned to convalesce from a wound received during military service in Afghanistan. The two young men agree to share lodgings at 221B Baker Street, and it is not long before Holmes's powers are put to a more practical use; Inspector Gregson of Scotland Yard asks for help in solving what he describes as 'a puzzler'. A man has been discovered dead, surrounded by clots and splashes of blood – but with no wounds upon him. Published in 1887, A Study in Scarlet marked the start of one of the most iconic fictional partnerships in literature. The Baker Street Classics Sherlock Holmes collection is a retro-inspired full set of Arthur Conan Doyle's wonderful tales of the inimitable "consulting detective" at work. Featuring original cover illustrations from editions of the 1920s, this collection will adorn any booklover's shelf and transport the reader back in time to Holmes's bustling Victorian London; the misty moors of Dartmoor; the dizzying heights of Reichenbach; and the cozy living room of 221b Baker Street.
