A collection of stories and plays that are as close to belonging to The Canon as can be. One of those rare ‘must-haves’ for your Holmes library.

Recommends it for: Sherlockians
This collection shares much of it's content with the collection entitled "The Final Adventures of Sherlock Holmes." actually the only items that do not appeare in the afore mentioned book are two stage plays "Sherlock Holmes" by William Gillette and a stage adaptation of "The Speckled Band" by the creator himself Arthur Conan Doyle. I highly recomend the two plays as they are both very good and hardly ever seen on stage anymore.

The two stories "The lost Special" and "The man with the watches"

A hodgepodge of Holmes related works including two stories he makes cameos in and plays written for the theater. These are all sub-par at best. Unless you are a die hard fan or a completest of the genre, this collection is better left unread.

I bought this book in a small Boston used book shop. A treasure for someone who took a class in mystery/detective literature and has an interest in Sherlock Holmes and his author, Arthur Conan Doyle.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, a talented illustrator, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855.

Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is
