The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes Illustrated

ByArthur Conan Doyle

The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes contains twelve stories written about the legendary consulting detective by his creator Arthur Conan Doyle. Like all the other Sherlock Holmes adventures, these stories were originally published in the Strand Magazine, in this case between October 1921 and April 1927. What sets the stories collected in the Case Book of Sherlock Holmes from all other anthologies is that that they represent the winding down of a literary sensation. These are the last original mysteries of Holmes to be published in the Strand and this is the last collection of original stories penned by Doyle. Some of the selections that that appear in The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes are the only remaining original Holmes stories written by Doyle that are not in the public domain. More will be added according to copyright law expiration dates until the year 2023, at which point all of the Holmes adventures will officially be considered public domain. Several of the stories in the collection were adapted for the highly regarded Granada TV series starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes. In fact, all but the "Blanched Soldier," the "Lion’s Mane," the "Veiled Lodger," and the "Retired Colourman" were adapted for the acclaimed series.
