Celebrating the 150th birthday of the greatest detective ever, Leslie S. Klinger's The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes presents an extraordinarily lavish, ultimately definitive look at Arthur Conan Doyle's famous investigator and his partner, Dr. Watson, as they sleuth their way through the 56 classic short stories. Filled with fascinating Victorian history, thousands of literary tidbits, and tantalizing new theories, these two volumes feature all five collections of the Sherlock Holmes tales that make up the short story canon, which include such well-known stories as: "A Scandal in Bohemia," "The Red-Headed League," "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," "The Adventure of the Six Napoleans," "The Final Problem," "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle."

With over 700 illustrations originally published in magazines such as the Strand Magazine Harper's Weekly, and Collier's Magazine as well as period photographs.

The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes features: Thousands of illustrations, many drawing on newly discovered sources; Illustrations and photographs depicting everyday life in Victorian and Edwardian England; A classic introduction by John le Carrė; Comprehensive biographical portraits of Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes, and Dr. Watson; Lists of Sherlock Holmes societies throughout the world and new Holmes sites on the Web.
