Though the text is not out of print, this new Barnes & Noble Classics edition is currently the most affordable collection of Holmes/ Watson outings. But don't let the price fool you. Besides the full text of the short story collections Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, this also includes the lengthier A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, and The Hound of the Baskervilles, along with introductions to the author and his writings and endnotes. You don't have to be Holmes to deduce that this is a great bargain. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
