Description

"The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" is the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the "Strand" magazine, in which they were first published, and won immense popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The detective is at the height of his powers and the volume is full of famous cases, including "The Red-Headed League", "The Blue Carbuncle", and "The Speckled Band". Although Holmes gained a reputation for infallibility, Conan Doyle showed his own realism and feminism by having the great detective defeated by Irene Adler - a woman - in the very first story, "A Scandal in Bohemia".show more
