A collection of eight Sherlock Holmes short stories, all of which had previously been published, either in other collections or in 'The Strand Magazine'.

Holmes and Watson are the best known detective duo of literature, becoming immensely culturally important since their introduction in 1887.
Six pages of adverts to the rear.
In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, smart. A few minor marks to the boards and spine, spine is a little faded. Small crack to the tail of the rear joint.
