In a nutshell: The Best Detective Stories Ever. ( )
  writertomg | Sep 6, 2017 |
Best guess of when I first read Holmes was my late tweens-early teens. Likely the single biggest factor in my life-long struggle with chronic Anglophilia. ( )

Some of the stories are great, some not so great, but it almost beside the point. The writing, the characters, settings are all great, but the sum is greater than the parts. I couldn't stop reading these and will start the other stories soon. I'm also watching the Granada TV series to compare. I'm a bit obsessed right now. ( )

Sherlock Holmes and his friend/biographer Dr. John Watson work on a series of cases that showcase Holmes' abilities for minute observation and deduction to brilliantly solve mysteries that no one else can.

The Original Illustrated Sherlock Holmes includes the typeset and illustration of The Strand magazine where the stories were first published. Once I got used to the double columns, I did find the illustrations by Sidney Paget quite interesting. My only complaint about the typeset is that some of the letters had faded partially or almost completely; I could figure out what the word was, but it was jarring. Having four books in one made it a rather large book and hard to hold.

The stories themselves are interesting to read as early examples of the mystery genre. Among the more well-known stories included is the opening one, "A Study in Bohemia," and the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles. The focus is all on the intricate plot and the brilliant sleuth, who knows more than the reader possibly can. They generally follow a similar pattern of Holmes being presented with the problem, showing the victim or Watson a bit of his deducting powers about something small and unrelated to the mystery, investigating a bit more, and then coming to the end of the investigation and explaining the solution. It's a bit more of a marvel if you read the stories further apart; reading too many on top of one another made me feel that Holmes is a bit of an insufferable know-it-all (though Dr. Watson is fawning enough). I find I prefer a more modern mystery with characters who are more sympathetic than analytical.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0890090572, Hardcover)

Here are the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle as they first appeared in the famed British magazine The Strand.  This periodical was the literary sensation of its time, especially with the publication of the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles (which appears in its entirety in this volume), when eager readers lined up outside the magazine's London offices, waiting for each installment as it came off press.
This edition contains 37 short stories, reproduced in complete facsimile (published in individual volumes as "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes", and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes"), plus the complete novel The Hound of the Baskervilles.
 
Today, the collection of the original issues of The Strand containing the Holmes stories is a rare collector's piece.  It is brought to you now, complete and unabridged, comprising a total of well over 600 pages, providing the undying excitement and fascination of each and every Sherlock Holmes Adventure.
 
The drawings of Sidney Paget illustrate the stories--illustrations as immortal as the stories themselves.  Paget produced more than 350 Sherlock Holmes illustrations, and it was his depictions which gave Holmes visual reality for everyone, which projected him throughout the world, and which today still provide the mold of the original hero in production on stage, screen and television.
