The Selected Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Illustrated by Max Löffler
Introduced by Michael Dirda
A stunning new Folio Society collection of Arthur Conan Doyle’s most compelling cases, The Selected Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is given a contemporary twist with Max Löffler’s unsettling illustrations.
‘You must have started early and yet you had a good drive in a dogcart, along heavy roads, before you reached the station.’ So declares literature’s best-loved detective upon greeting a new client in the sitting room of 221b Baker Street. Amazed by his powers of deduction, the stranger reveals her story and a new adventure commences.
‘Twice after his career had been definitely terminated by the author, Sherlock Holmes was brought back to fictional life, so avid was the appetite of the public for the narratives of the solution of crime by minute deductive reasoning.’
