Bought on the Kindle Fire Hd. I have yet to read the entire book - this is just a review on the collection, TOC, and organization. However, from what I have read there were no errors. I'll update later when I actually finish the book.
From what I can tell, this option does in fact offer the entire collection and is set up in the following manner. The TOC does include links to individual short stories; I disregarded them here out of practicality.
A Study In Scarlet (Part 1 and 2)
(Mr. Sherlock Holmes, The Science of Deduction, The Lauriston Garden Mystery, ect.)
The Sign of Four
Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
The Hound of the Baskervilles
The Return of Sherlock Holmes
The Valley of Fear (Part 1 and 2)
His Last Bow
The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes
The TOC works perfectly fine. It may be a little confusing for some though. I'd recommend you take a look at "peak inside" option Amazon offers if you're a bit confused. There's really no difference between any other Kindle books I've bought. There are actually two TOC's - one displaying volumes and the other for content within the volumes. The "Volumes" TOC is located right being the cover (Loc 2). The Volume TOC will link you to individual volumes; then there will be a TOC for the volume itself.Read more ›
This particular edition, is the perfect one. Comfortably large size, easy on the eyes, hardbound is elegant and somehow I found it very easy to position it anyways I wanted, whether I was sitting upright with the book on the desk, or when in travel with the book on my lap, lying on my side with the book on the left. I thought this is important to mention , now ofcourse to the content..
The higlight of this edition is the illustration collection by Sydney Paget, as they appeared when it was first published. It is significant to read the stories with Sydney Paget's illustrations, since Sydney Paget practically defined the way Sherlock Holmes appeared. though Conan Doyle's descriptins can lead one to visualize Holmes, it was Sydney who set it on paper. and the fact that he was working along with Conan Doyle, brings in the authenticity and approval of the visual representation of the stories. Sydney Paget ofcourse is a master illustrator, with fascinating black and white illustrations capturing all the drama in the stories.
The book contains,
37 short stories and a complete novel from The Strand Magazine. With all 356 original illustrations by Sidney Paget.
Stories included are
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, published in The Strand between July, 1891 and December, 1892 (12 stories);
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Published in The Strand as additional episodes between December, 1892 and November, 1893 (12 stories);
The Hound of the Baskervilles, published in The Strand between August, 1901 and April, 1902; and
The Return of Sherlock Holmes, published in The Strand between October, 1903 and January, 1905 (13 stories).

A good collection for Sherlock fans. The drawings, which are usually not present in Sherlock books, add to the delight of reading or rereading these classic stories.Published 1 month ago by A. J. Dessler
