Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had a lasting interest in the supernatural, and in Sherlock Holmes: The Dark Mysteries, Sherlock Holmes expert David Stuart Davies has selected the Holmes and Watson cases that best reflect this. The first is that classic novella, the terrifying The Hound of the Baskervilles, followed by nine Gothic adventures: The Sussex Vampire, The Creeping Man, Shoscombe Old Place, The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax, The Veiled Lodger, The Devil's Foot, The Blanched Soldier, and The Cardboard Box, all with the original illustrations. Illustrated by Sidney Paget and others, the illustrators of the original stories in The Strand magazine. With an Introduction by David Stuart Davies, writer and editor. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Collector's Library is a series of beautifully bound hardback gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
