The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes #3) by Arthur Conan Doyle Overview

"One night - it was on the twentieth of March, 1888 - 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.

[...] Contains a collection of 12 adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, such as "A Scandal in Bohemia" and "The Red-Headed League." Originally leased in 1892.
