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 is a MusicBook. Include multimedia soundtrack. 15 Songs to implement the pleasure of reading. The book was first published in February 1905 by McClure, Phillips & Co. (New York) then on 7 March 1905 by Georges Newnes, Ltd. (London)[2] This was the first Holmes collection since 1893, when Holmes had "died" in The Final Problem. Having published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901–1902 (although setting it before Holmes' death) Doyle came under intense pressure to revive his famous character. The first story is set in 1894 and has Holmes returning in London and explaining the period from 1891–94, a period called "The Great Hiatus" by Sherlockian enthusiasts. Also of note is Watson's statement in the last story of the cycle that Holmes has retired, and forbids him to publish any more stories.

In the tradition of the old Ace Doubles (flip the book over to read the second volume), here's the tenth Wildside Mystery Double: THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES: A CLASSIC CRIME TALE, adapted from the play of Ernest Dudley by Philip Harbottle. Ernest Dudley (the creator of Dr. Morelle) was married to the actress who was a stepdaughter of Ellie Norwood, the famous silent film actor who played Sherlock Holmes on stage many times. Dudley's familiarity with Conan Doyle's famous characters is very evident in this exciting story of blackmail and murder, as Sherlock Holmes pits his wits against his deadly enemy, Colonel Sebastian Moran, second-in-command to Professor Moriarty. NEW CASES FOR DR. MORELLE: CLASSIC CRIME STORIES, by Ernest Dudley. Cynthia Mason, a young heiress, lives with her violent stepfather, Samuel Kimber, who only holds control of her fortune while she remains unmarried. On announcing her engagement to Peter Lorrimer, a local writer, who is calling to take her away that same evening, she fears his reaction. Lorrimer arrives and goes to talk with Kimber in his study. Cynthia, meanwhile, carrying a suitcase, tiptoes downstairs, opens the front door, and leaves. But she's not in Lorrimer's car when he goes down to the gates after his interview with Kimber. Instead, she vanishes without a trace! Her confidante and friend Miss Frayle, secretary to the criminologist Doctor Morelle, tries to find her--and herself becomes a target for murder! Four classic crime stories resurrected for a brand new audience.

This early work by Arthur Conan Doyle was originally published in 1905 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography as part of our Sherlock Holmes series. Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1859. It was between 1876 and 1881, while studying medicine at the University of Edinburgh, that he began writing short stories, and his first piece was published in Chambers's Edinburgh Journal before he was 20. In 1887, Conan Doyle's first significant work, A Study in Scarlet, appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual. It featured the first appearance of detective Sherlock Holmes, the protagonist who was to eventually make Conan Doyle's reputation. A prolific writer, Conan Doyle continued to produce a range of fictional works over the following years. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
