Description of the book "Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes (Collector's Library)":In The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes you can read the final twelve stories that Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about his brilliant detective. It is perhaps the most unusual and certainly the darkest collection that he penned. Treachery, mutilation, and the terrible consequences of infidelity are just some of the themes explored in this collection, along with atmospheric touches of the Gothic involving a blood-sucking vampire, crypts at midnight and strange bones in a furnace. These challenging and often bizarre tales reflect the mood of the disillusioned post-war world of the 1920s when they were written. Amid this grey miasma PDF of crime stands the shining figure of Sherlock Holmes who is there to unravel even the most baffling mystery.
Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. After a rigorous Jesuit education, he trained to become a doctor at Edinburgh University. Eventually he set up in medical practice in Southsea and during the quiet spells between patients he turned his hand to writing. It was here that he created his scientific detective Sherlock Holmes, a character based to some extent on one of his tutors at Edinburgh, Dr. Joseph Bell. Although Holmes was Doyle's greatest creation, he was PDF more proud of his historical novels such as Micah Clarke, Sir Nigel and The White Company. A man of many interests and talents, he was an expert in photography and was a pioneer of cross-country skiing. Towards the end of his life he devoted much of his time to his belief in Spiritualism. He died in 1930.
