Seine ehrgeizigsten Wünsche gingen in Erfüllung, denn er baute sich ein schmuckes Haus aus Ziegelstein auf dem Hügel im Norden der Stadt, von wo aus er die Schiffahrt auf dem Fluß und in der Bucht beobachten konnte. Dort lebte er, hochgeachtet von seinen Mitbürgern, die ihn zum Stadtverordneten und Ratsherren wählten und ihm den Oberbefehl über ein gutes Schiff gaben, als Sir William Phips seinen Angriff auf Quebec unternahm, aber doch fand, daß der alte Löwe Frontenac nicht aus seiner Höhle zu vertreiben war. Von aller Welt geachtet, erlebte der alte Seemann noch einen großen Teil des nächsten Jahrhunderts, so daß seine altersmüden Augen schon etwas von der wachsenden Größe seines Vaterlandes schauen durften.""

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, originally published in 1893, by Arthur Conan Doyle. The first London edition of the Memoirs in 1894 did not include "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box", although all twelve stories had appeared in the Strand Magazine. The first U.S. edition included the story, but it was very quickly replaced with a revised edition that omitted it. The reasoning behind the suppression is unclear. In Britain the story was apparently removed at Doyle's request as it included adultery and so was unsuitable for younger readers. This may have also been the cause for the rapid removal of the story from the U.S. edition, and some sources state that the publishers believed the story was too scandalous for the American public. As a result, this story was not republished in the U.S. until many years later, when it was added to His Last Bow. Even today, most American editions of the canon include it with His Last Bow, while most British editions keep the story in its original place in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Additionally, when the story was removed from the Memoirs, its opening pages, where Holmes emulates Dupin, were transferred to the beginning of "The Adventure of the Resident Patient". In some later U.S. editions of the Memoirs, which still omit "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box", this transfer still appears. Doyle had decided that these would be the last collection of Holmes's stories and initially decided to get him killed in "The Final Problem". However public pressure forced him to write the character again in "The Hound of Baskervilles" and resurrect him in the forthcoming "The Return of Sherlock Holmes".

Arthur Conan Doyle's His Last Bow collects together eight Sherlock Holmes stories. Originally called Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes and not containing the title story His Last Bow, later editions of this book added that final story and changed the title. When the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes were first sold America, the publishers removed The Adventure of the Cardboard Box, considering its dealing with adultery to be too scandalous for the American public. The story was not released in the United States until year later, when it was included in His Last Bow.

It is more than a century since the ascetic, gaunt and enigmatic detective, Sherlock Holmes, made his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. From 1891, beginning with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the now legendary and pioneering Strand Magazine began serialising Arthur Conan Doyle's matchless tales of detection, featuring the incomparable sleuth patiently assisted by his doggedly loyal and lovably pedantic friend and companion, Dr Watson. The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Holmes and his world derive and who first equipped Holmes with his famous deerstalker hat. The literary cult of Sherlock Holmes shows no sign of fading with time as each new generation comes to love and revere the penetrating mind and ruthless logic which were the undoing of so many Victorian master criminals.

'My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know'. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmesfirst introduced Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant detective to the readers of The Strand Magazine. The runaway success of this series prompted a second set of stories, The Memoirs. In these twenty three tales, collected here in one volume, you have some of the best detective yarns ever penned. In his consulting room at 221B Baker Street, the master sleuth receives a stream of clients all presenting him with baffling and bizarre mysteries to unravel. There is, for example, the man who is frightened for his life because of the arrival of an envelope containing five orange pips; there is the terrified woman who is aware that her life is in danger and cannot explain the strange whistling sounds she hears in the night; and there is the riddle of the missing butler and the theft of an ancient treasure. In the last story, there is the climatic battle between Holmes and his arch enemy, 'the Napoleon of Crime' Professor Moriarty. Holmes, with trusty Watson by his side, is equal to these and the other challenges in this splendid collection.

Sherlock Holmes ist eine der berühmtesten Heldenfiguren der Kriminalliteratur. Diese Reihe wurde nach einer Idee von Sir Arthur Conan Doyle geschrieben. Er schuf mit dem Meisterdetektiv Sherlock Holmes einen unsterblichen Charakter, der auch die rätselhaftesten Kriminalfälle mit Phantasie und Spürsinn löst. Es mag Sie, lieber Leser, überraschen, dass in meiner heutigen Geschichte das erste Mal jemand beschrieben wird, den ich in den ersten vier Fällen mit keinem Sterbenswörtchen erwähnt habe. Das lag daran - und ich hoffe, Sie werden mir verzeihen -, dass wir in diesen Fällen nur bedingt mit Scotland Yard zu tun hatten. Und als es doch mal eine kurze Überschneidung gab, in Form eines Zeitungsberichtes, hatte der gerade bei uns auf dem Sofa sitzende Gast mit dem Fall des Blauen Karfunkel eigentlich gar nichts zu tun.
