The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the Strand magazine, in which they were first published, and won immense popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The detective is at the height of his powers and the volume is full of famous cases, including `The Red-Headed League', `The Blue Carbuncle', and `The Speckled Band'. Although Holmes gained a reputation for infallibility, Conan Doyle showed his own realism and feminism by having the great detective defeated by Irene Adler - the woman - in the very first story, `A Scandal in Bohemia'. The editor of this volume, Richard Lancelyn Green is editor of The Uncollected Sherlock Holmes and The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. With John Michael Gibson, he compiled the Soho Series Bibliography of A. Conan Doyle.

This new illustrated edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes has added explanations as sidenotes to help those readers who are not familiar with some of the phrases used by the author and his characters--after all the stories were written over 120 years ago. Some of the author's phrases are still in use in modern-day British English and these are described to make the text clearer to English speakers from outside of the UK, or to those who do not speak English as a first language. Also included is some background information on places, names and terms used in the stories. It is not essential to consult the notes when reading this book, however, it is hoped that the explanations will enhance the reader's enjoyment of the stories by giving them some insights that might otherwise have been missed. The book is illustrated with Sidney Paget's beautiful drawings that so help to visualize the stories. All of the drawings from the first publication have been included.
