Introduction: Holmes' Occupation:

It was 1887, and a manuscript of a story - after several rejections - was sold for L25 to a publisher who performed the signal service of bringing out A Study in Scarlet in which a character who thereafter disappears forever makes an historic introduction "Dr. Watson, Mr. Sherlock Holmes."

Disambiguation notice
STOP! The "New Expanded" edition of The Sherlock Holmes Mysteries contains 22 stories (compared with 10 in another edition). See description for details.

So which one is this supposed to be - the 22 the ISBN sent us to, or the original 10? The description would indicate it's the edition with 22 stories.

@KeepDiggingWatson Why are the lights at 221 Baker Street so damn bright in the morning? Why does Watson talk so loud? Elementary, my dear STFU!
