Adventures of Sherlock Holmes & the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

DOYLE, Arthur Conan

DOYLE, Arthur Conan Adventures of Sherlock Holmes & the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

Newnes, 1892.

Two volumes, both first editions. Original light and dark blue cloth with gilt lettering and Strand Library design on upper covers and gilt labels on spine. Frontispiece plate of Holmes and Moriarty on the Reichenbach Falls in the Memoirs, and illustrated throughout by Sydney Paget. A near fine set. The Adventures, much the scarcer of the two, is particularly clean and bright with perfect hinges and just a couple of scratches to the spine. The Memoirs shows a little wear to the spine ends and rubbing to the gilt panels on the spine and hinges starting, but internally clean. A well preserved set.

Although Sherlock Holmes made his first appearance some four years earlier in 'A Study in Scarlet', The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes marks the great detective's debut in a short story, the form in which he is best known and which propelled Holmes to the status of detective fiction's most enduring character and his author to literary celebrity.
Due to its heavy paper stock and delicate colouring, sets with the Adventures in such nice condition are rather uncommon.
