SHERLOCK HOLMES: The Complete Collection (Including all 9 books in Sherlock Holmes series)
(4.6 / 5)
Sherlock Holmes is a mid 19th and mid 20th century fictional detective who was first published in 1887. He is the invention of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a Scottish born writer and doctor. A wonderful detective based in London, Holmes is known for his intellectual prowess and is known for his ability to use deductive reasoning (somewhat wrongly-see inductive logic) and astute reflection to fix hard instances. He is arguably the most famous detective of fiction ever created, and is one of the most recognizable literary characters in any genre.
Conan Doyle penned four books that depicted Holmes and fifty-six short stories. Holmes ‘ colleague and historian, Dr. John H. Watson, recounted all but four tales, two told by Holmes himself, and two others published in the third person. In Beeton’s Christmas Annual for 1887 and Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine in 1890, the first two tales, brief novels, emerged. With the start of the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine in 1891, the character grew tremendously in popularity; further series of short stories and two serialized novels appeared almost right up to the death of Conan Doyle in 1930. The tales contain a span between about 1878 and 1903, with a final case in 1914.
This compilation includes all 60 formal and 6 informal tales from Sherlock Holmes-in approximately 66 titles (the largest and largest compilation from Sherlock Holmes in the eBook globe).
