This enthralling collection of Sherlock Holmes adventures comprises the first two volumes of short stories—The Adventures and The Memoirs—as they were originally gathered together in book form, with 12 adventures in each volumeThe Adventures ofMoreThis enthralling collection of Sherlock Holmes adventures comprises the first two volumes of short stories—The Adventures and The Memoirs—as they were originally gathered together in book form, with 12 adventures in each volumeThe Adventures of Sherlock Holmes contains four of Conan Doyles own all-time favorite Holmes mysteries, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Red-Headed League, A Scandal in Bohemia, and The Five Orange Pips. The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes has another three of Conan Doyles favorites in The Adventure of the Reigate Squire, The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual, and The Adventure of the Final Problem. It is in The Final Problem, of course, that Dr. Watson sadly reports the death of Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls near Meiringen in Switzerland. Holmess titanic struggle with his arch enemy, Professor Moriarty, had seen them both apparently plunge over a sheer drop, although Watson never actually saw Holmess body. This was Conan Doyles attempt to bring an end to Holmess adventures, but he was to be resurrected by popular demand eight years later. The Memoirs also includes The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter, in which Holmess brother, Mycroft, appears for the first time and The Adventure of the Gloria Scott, in which Holmes describes to Watson his very first case.
