Learn hundreds of foreign words and phrases!This book bundle brings together 3 of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous short story collections featuring the most famous detective in literature.
This bundle includes:
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
The stories found in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes were originally published in The Strand magazine as serial episodes. This collection, the first of five, contains the earliest of Arthur Conan Doyle's short stories, and laid the groundwork for later full-length novels about the "high-functioning sociopath" and his mustachioed sidekick.
Sherlock Holmes' popularity in literature seems to transcend fiction, as his demeanor and accoutrement (hat, pipe, magnifying glass, et al.) are nearly synonymous with his perceived personhood.
It comes as no surprise that Doyle—through Sherlock Holmes—laid the groundwork for detective fiction that persists to this day.
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Originally intended to be the final installment of Sherlock Holmes' adventures, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes introduces to readers one of the most famous villains in fiction: Professor Moriarty.
The Return of Sherlock Holmes
The Return of Sherlock Holmes is Doyle's third collection of short stories centered around the famous Sherlock Holmes. The stories were originally published as a serial in The Strand Magazine before being released as a book.
Holmes has been in hiding for years, and Dr. Watson hasn't seen his friend since the disappearance. But one day, Watson unexpectedly receives correspondence from Holmes, who has been investigating the disappearances of three people. It's also apparent that Holmes' rival, the mastermind Moriarty—one of the most famous villains in literature—is connected with the disappearances.
The battle of wits between two intellectual juggernauts has never had higher stakes.
