Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was a Scottish physician and writer, most noted for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes, generally considered a milestone in the field of crime fiction, and for the adventures of Professor Challenger. He was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, nonfiction, and historical novels.

This tiny yet oh-so-cute collection is a must for any Holmes and Watson fan. Yes, they are small, like holding small printed bibles in your hand, but that makes it all the more special. It really takes you back to the traditional printed books, and you don't need 20/20 vision to be able to read it.
This particular collection comes with afterwords in each book. These afterwords are quite informative if you wish to learn more about Sir Doyle, and it gives you a good insight as to his thoughts and feelings when writing of the famous detective (such as his desire to once and for all be rid of Holmes after writing 'The Final Problem', but bringing him back for another story in 'The Hound of the Baskervilles').
Just make sure you read the stories in order (you don't necessarily have to, but it does help, otherwise you'll be confusing yourself when Watson refers back to stories that haven't actually happened yet). 'A Study in Scarlet' is where you will start ... a heartwarming buzz in your chest is where you will end. Heck, when you're done just go over and start again!
