1891-1902 - London - George Newnes

10" by 7"

 


 

DETAILS

Volumes I-XXIV of this popular Victorian periodical.

In a lovely half calf binding with gilt stamping to the spines.

The Strand Magazine was a monthly magazine founded by George Newnes. The work was an interesting mix of fictional tales as well as articles of general interest.

Comprising of numerous Sherlock Holmes adventures. These volumes contain all the Sherlock Holmes Adventures until the character's initial death in the 1893 volume with the tale 'The Final Problem'. Following this there was an eight year hiatus of Holmes tales, until due to public pressure Conan Doyle released The Hound of The Baskervilles which can be found in the 1901 and 1902 volumes of this work. The Hound of the Baskervilles is set before Holmes' death. 

The short story collection of Sherlock Holmes tales found to these works are The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes in addition to the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles. Short stories from the collections include 'A Scandal in Bohemia', 'The Adventure of the Speckled Band', 'The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb' and more. 

Other articles include writings on Queen Victoria's doll collection, 'The Queen's Hindustani Diary' by Moulvie Rafiuddin Ahmad, 'a Chapter On Ears' (A selection of photographs of the ears of famous ladies), 'Stories from the Diary of a Doctor', 'The Handwriting of Thomas Carlyle', 'The Handwriting of Alfred Lord Tennyson' and more.
