Arthur Conan Doyle & Leslie S. Klinger
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The four classic novels of Sherlock Holmes, heavily illustrated and annotated with extensive scholarly commentary, in an attractive and elegant slipcase.
The publication of Leslie S. Klinger's brilliant new annotations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's four classic Holmes novels in 2005 created a Holmes sensation. Klinger reassembles Doyle's four seminal novels in their original order, with over 1,000 notes, 350 illustrations and period photographs, and tantalizing new Sherlockian theories. Inside, readers will find: A Study in Scarlet (1887)—a tale of murder and revenge that tells of Holmes and Dr. Watson's first meeting; The Sign of Four (1889)—a chilling tale of lost treasure...and of how Watson met his wife; The Hound of the Baskervilles (1901)—hailed as the greatest mystery novel of all time; and The Valley of Fear (1914)—a fresh murder scene that leads Holmes to solve a long-forgotten mystery.
Whether as a stand-alone volume or as a companion to the short stories, this classic work illuminates the timeless genius of Conan Doyle for an entirely new generation.
The $59.99 price for the ebook version of this book is the same as the printed version which I own. I think it would be better to offer this ebook at a more reasonable price.
HAIL! APPLE GODS!
Hail apple gods!
I know that thou thinketh that thou can chargeth whatever thou whilst albeit the price is such that it exceedeth all common sense and rationality, but I humbly beseech thee in lowering the price of said ebook. Truly, with the success of the MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPad, and the Apple Watch (all of which I own), thou believest that thou holdeth our bank accounts in thy hands (and thou wouldest be right), but again I petition, nay, supplicate before thee in lowering the price of said ebook.
