"One thing is certain, Sherlockians, put aside your Baring-Gould Annotated, your Folio Society Illustrated-for the time being, the Oxford is the edition to curl up with on a winter's night"--The Chicago Tribune"An incomparable gift book; or, should you find it impossible to surrender up such treasures, the best of gifts to oneself"--USA Today"To the true Sherlockian, this will be a treasure; to otherwise diverted detective story fans, it is a rich lode for discovery"--Denver Post"The complete and authentic adventures of the legendary detective--expertly edited and annotated by a team of Holmes scholars....in a handsome, boxed set....A lovely gift"--The Christian Science Monitor"Here in nine volumes...are all the adventures of Holmes and Watson. Each book has an introduction, something new and fascinating for even the most devoted Holmesians plus a series of intelligent notes at the back of each volume."--Oxford Times "The Oxford Sherlock Holmes, a new edition of the stories, is a splendid piece of publishing. Nine compact volumes, beautifully produced, each with a stimulating introduction; clear type, accurate texts, a handy chronology, a helpful bibliography. And, most valuable of all, explanatory notes running to 50 pages or more per volume."--John Gross, writing in Sunday TelegraphFrom the Publisher:
Readers were first introduced to the inhabitants of 221B Baker Street in 1887. Since then Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson have become so familiar to millions through Conan Doyle's books and the many film and TV adaptations of their adventures that it is sometimes difficult to remember they are fictional and not historical characters. This edition of nine hardback volumes provides the reader with annotation. Each volume is also available individually, and contains notes on the stories and introductions by experts on Conan Doyle's life and works.
