John Watson über dieses Buch: "Dieses Buch ist mein bescheidener Versuch, ein wenig Licht auf die Arbeit des besten und weisesten Menschen zu werfen, den ich je gekannt habe. Er hat – wenn ich das so sagen darf – die Wissenschaft der Deduktion zur Kunst erhoben. Nachdem ich bei einigen seiner bedeutendsten Fälle an seiner Seite sein durfte, liegt es nun an mir, seine Verdienste einem breiteren Publikum zu präsentieren. Er ist, um es kurz zu machen, der Mozart der Kriminalwissenschaft. Ich würde gern noch fortfahren, doch mit großer Freude darf ich Ihnen sagen, dass Sherlock Holmes persönlich zugesagt hat, einen Teil dieses Textes zu schreiben ..." Sherlock Holmes über dieses Buch: "Kaufen Sie dieses Buch auf keinen Fall. Was eigentlich eine Serie von spannenden Vorträgen hätte werden sollen, hat der Autor zu geschmackloser, billiger Unterhaltung degradiert. Die Wissenschaft der Deduktion ist eine Sparte menschlicher Errungenschaften, die ernsthafte Analysen erfordert, und hier ist nun dieses verschwenderisch gestaltete Buch durch Humor entstellt und mit Klatsch und Tratsch vergiftet. Offenbar ist diese Art der Sensationsgier nötig, um das Interesse der lesenden Bevölkerung zu wecken, aber nur ein Idiot wäre hiervon beeindruckt. Sie entscheiden."

This book is my humble attempt to shine a light on the work of the best and wisest I have ever known. He has, I think it is safe to say, elevated the science of detection into an art form. Having been at his side during some of his most remarkable cases, it has fallen to me to bring his achievements to the attention of the wider public. He is, quite simply, the Mozart of criminal investigation. I would say more, but I am flattered and delighted to say that Sherlock Holmes himself has agreed to write a piece for the cover. John Watson * Don’t buy this book. The author has transformed what should have been a series of lectures into a gross and tasteless entertainment. The science of deduction is a branch of human achievement requiring serious analysis and yet here I find it lavishly illustrated, disfigured with humour and infested with gossip. Apparently, this kind of sensationalism is required to engage the interest of the reading public, but it is rather like working an office romance into a paper on quantum physics. Only an idiot would be impressed. Help yourself. Sherlock Holmes

The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes is the final set of twelve Sherlock Holmes short stories (56 total) by Arthur Conan Doyle first published Strand Magazine October 1921 - April 1927. The first British edition and the first American edition of the collection were both published in June 1927. However, they had slightly different titles. The title of the British collection was The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes (hyphenated "Case-Book"), whereas title of the American was The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes ("Case Book" as two words). Further confusing the issue of the title, some later publishers publish the collection under the title The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes ("Casebook" as a single word). The Case-Book contains three stories not narrated by Dr. Watson, as most Sherlock Holmes stories are. "The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone" is narrated in the third person, since it was adapted from a stage play in which Watson hardly appeared. "The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier" and "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane" are both narrated by Holmes himself, the latter being set after his retirement. The original chronological order in which the twelve stories in The Case-Book were published is as follows: "The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone" (told in third-person), "The Problem of Thor Bridge", "The Adventure of the Creeping Man", "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire", "The Adventure of the Three Garridebs", "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client", "The Adventure of the Three Gables", "The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier" (narrated by Holmes), "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane" (narrated by Holmes), "The Adventure of the Retired Colourman", "The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger" and "The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place".

These are the last 12 stories Conan Doyle wrote about Holmes and Watson. They reflect the disillusioned world of the 1920's in which they were written, and Doyle can be seen to take advantage of new, more open conventions in fiction.

"His career has been a long one," Arthur Conan Doyle notes of his immortal creation, Sherlock Holmes. Doyle made his observation in the 1920s, when the detective had already been thrilling readers for 40 years, and he modestly attributed his hero's success to "the patience and loyalty of the British public." Nearly a century later, the fictional sleuth continues to captivate imaginations around the world and to inspire modern-day reinterpretations. By the twentieth century Doyle had moved on to other literary endeavors but the public demand for further adventures of the Baker Street sleuth proved irresistible. The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes is the last such work to be regarded as canon, a collection of stories written before other writers claimed the character and his associates as their own. Here are a dozen tales of passion, revenge, greed, and murder—the final adventures of the great detective, as recounted by the master storyteller himself.

»Die Hände waren zu Fäusten geballt und die Arme weit ausgebreitet, wogegen seine unteren Gliedmaßen verrenkt waren, als sei sein Todeskampf fürchterlich gewesen. Auf seinem starren Gesicht war ein Ausdruck des Grauens festgefroren, und, so schien es mir, des Hasses, eines Hasses wie ich ihn noch nie zuvor in menschlichen Zügen gesehen hatte.«
