Summary

Classic short stories of Sherlock Holmes now available in a separate, attractively priced individual volume.

The publication of Leslie S. Klingers brilliant new annotations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyles classic Holmes short stories in 2004 created a Holmes sensation. Available again in an attractively-priced edition identical to the first, except this edition has no outer slipcase (Volume One is available separately).
Inside, readers will find all the short stories from The Return of Sherlock Holmes, His Last Bow and The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes, with a cornucopia of insights: beginners will benefit from Klingers insightful biographies of Holmes, Watson, and Conan Doyle; history lovers will revel in the wealth of Victorian literary and cultural details; Sherlockian fanatics will puzzle over tantalizing new theories; art lovers will thrill to the 450-plus illustrations, which make this the most lavishly illustrated edition of the Holmes tales ever produced. The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes illuminates the timeless genius of Arthur Conan Doyle for an entirely new generation of readers.

    I read pretty much all of the Sherlock Holmes short stories years ago when my children were little. I started out with the most famous, "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and could not get through it, found it difficult reading, dry, etc. At that point in my life, to keep my adult brain nourished; my goal was to pick a new author or genre of literature and read all that I could of that author or new genre during a year. Well, Holmes was what I had chosen to stretch myself and I was determined to finish what I barely had started. I began with a more simple short story; enjoyed it and continued reading all of the Holmes stories I could get a hold of. Then, I finished my Holmes experience (after months of getting to know and love these short stories) with "The Hound of the Baskervilles" loving and enjoying the story. I could see why it was considered Doyle's best.

    Since then I have loved all of the ways the media has explored Sherlock. My favorite being the PBS version. I still catch it when they bring that series out of the vaults. I totally enjoyed the most recent movie with Rober Downy Jr. It was certainly ramped up for the younger audience; but I LOVED all the Sherlock elements that were woven into that experience.

    My husband gave me the first two volumes of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes a few months ago. I marveled at the detailed dedication of Klinger's notes. I LOVED all of the additional information about the time and places that the stories took place as well as all the juicy gossip and theories about the origen and authenticiy of the characters and the author/s?!

    I have enjoyed pulling these stories out over the last months and delving into one or several of the stories in between other reads. What a great friend Doyle, Watson and most of all Sherlock has become over the years.
