Join Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on their very first case together! A Study in Scarlet recounts their first meeting, as well as Watson's initial impressions of the Great Detective's unusual traits and habits.
The Sherlock Holmes stories have inspired a vast body of literature dedicated to the proposition that the Great Detective was not a mere work of fiction, but an actual historical person. Since the 1920s these “writings about The Writings” have contributed fascinating new insights into the stories, enhancing the pleasure of reading them. The Sherlock Holmes Reference Library, which will eventually number nine volumes, puts the entire history of this “Higher Criticism” at your fingertips! Each illustrated volume is bursting with scholarly annotations and features a sturdy, smythe-sewn soft cover binding.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1859. He abandoned a promising medical career for the life of a full-time author. Without a doubt, the famous detective Sherlock Holmes is his most popular creation. However, in addition to detective stories, Doyle wrote historical romances, tales of horror and the supernatural, and was a pioneer in the field of Science Fiction. In his later years, Doyle’s increasing devotion to Spiritualism became his primary mission in life, and he travelled the world as an evangelist for his beliefs. He was knighted in 1902, and died in 1930.
