The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes


Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

THE MEMOIRS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, originally published in 1894, by Arthur Conan Doyle.
The twelve stories (eleven in American editions) of the Memoirs are: "Silver Blaze", "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box", "The Adventure of the Yellow Face", "The Adventure of the Stockbroker's Clerk", "The Adventure of the Gloria Scott", "The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual", "The Adventure of the Reigate Squire", "The Adventure of the Crooked Man", "The Adventure of the Resident Patient", "The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter", "The Adventure of the Naval Treaty", "The Final Problem".
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 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 edition by Wisehouse Classics includes all of the stories with the original illustrations by Sidney Paget. (more on www.wisehouse-classics.com)
