The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his famous detective and illustrated by Sidney Paget.
My own complete happiness, and the home-centred interests which rise up around the man who first finds himself master of his own establishment, were sufficient to absorb all my attention, while Holmes, who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul, remained in our lodgings in Baker Street, buried among his old books, and alternating from week to week between cocaine and ambition, the drowsiness of the drug, and the fierce energy of his own keen nature.
He was still, as ever, deeply attracted by the study of crime, and occupied his immense faculties and extraordinary powers of observation in following out those clues, and clearing up those mysteries which had been abandoned as hopeless by the official police. From time to time I heard some vague account of his doings: of his summons to Odessa in the case of the Trepoff murder, of his clearing up of the singular tragedy of the Atkinson brothers at Trincomalee, and finally of the mission which he had accomplished so delicately and successfully for the reigning family of Holland.
Beyond these signs of his activity, however, which I merely shared with all the readers of the daily press, I knew little of my former friend and companion. One night—it was on the twentieth of March, —I was returning from a journey to a patient for I had now returned to civil practice , when my way led me through Baker Street.
As I passed the well-remembered door, which must always be associated in my mind with my wooing, and with the dark incidents of the Study in Scarlet, I was seized with a keen desire to see Holmes again, and to know how he was employing his extraordinary powers.
His rooms were brilliantly lit, and, even as I looked up, I saw his tall, spare figure pass twice in a dark silhouette against the blind. He was pacing the room swiftly, eagerly, with his head sunk upon his chest and his hands clasped behind him. To me, who knew his every mood and habit, his attitude and manner told their own story. He was at work again.
He had risen out of his drug-created dreams and was hot upon the scent of some new problem. I don't recommend them in chronological order.
Instead, I suggest the following order: 1. A Study in Scarlet 2.
The Sign of The Four 3. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes 4. The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes - here I would stop when you finish the penultimate story and then read A Valley of Fear - and then read the last story of the Memoirs. The rest of the short stories in the order that HarryT listed them.
The last short novel, Hound of the Baskervilles, is very self contained, so I would read it anytime after number 1 and 2 on my list.
Happy reading. BrentB , PM Harry, are you still working on the illustrated stories? Oh well thanks for nice Holmes Omibus download. So which version should I read to read in order?
He's a stiff'un, sir, if I may say so. I can get along with the Prime Minister, and I've nothing against the Home Secretary, who seemed a civil, obliging sort of man, but I can't stand his Lordship. Neither can Mr.
Holmes, sir. You see, he don't believe in Mr. Holmes and he was against employing him. He'd rather he failed. Holmes knows it?
Holmes always knows whatever there is to know. But I say, Billy, what is that curtain for across the window? Holmes had it put up there three days ago. We've got something funny behind it. Watson could not restrain a cry of amazement. There was a facsimile of his old friend, dressing-gown and all, the face turned three-quarters towards the window and downward, as though reading an invisible book, while the body was sunk deep in an armchair.
Billy detached the head and held it in the air.
