Summary

Edición conmemorativa de los 125 años de la primera publicación, con las ilustraciones originales de Sidney Paget.

«No se fíe nunca de las impresiones generales, amigo mío, y concéntrese en los detalles.»

Los primeros relatos protagonizados por el emblemático personaje de Sir Arthur Conan Doyle se reúnen en esta edición conmemorativa para celebrar el 125 aniversario de su primera publicación. Las ilustraciones originales de Sidney Paget acompañan las historias como lo hicieron en la revista Strand a finales del siglo XIX.

Esta edición permite saborear el atractivo original de un libro que consagró inmediatamente al detective más famoso del mundo. La espléndida traducción de Esther Tusquets acerca a los lectores a algunos de los cuentos de misterio y asesinatos más conocidos de Holmes, como La aventura de la banda de lunares, en el que las últimas palabras de una mujer y un inexplicable silbido en la noche son las únicas pistas, o Las cinco pepitas de naranja, donde una carta desvela una conspiración transatlántica.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his famous detective. Venture back in time to Victorian London to join literature's greatest detective team — the brilliant Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant, Dr. Watson — as they investigate a dozen of their best-known cases. Originally published in 1892, this is the first and best collection of stories about the legendary sleuth. It's also the least expensive edition available. Featured tales include several of the author's personal favorites: "A Scandal in Bohemia" — in which a king is blackmailed by a former lover and Holmes matches wits with the only woman to attract his open admiration — plus "The Speckled Band," "The Red-Headed League," and "The Five Orange Pips." Additional mysteries include "The Blue Carbuncle," "The Engineer’s Thumb," "The Beryl Coronet," "The Copper Beeches," and four others.
