Ten years after the supposed death of Sherlock Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls, Arthur Conan Doyle was to bow to popular pressure and breathe new life into his creation. To the astonishment of Dr Watson, and the delight of his readers, Holmes reappears in Baker Street to embark on a new series of adventures. Amongst the famous cases he and Watson tackle are `The Dancing Men', `The Solitary Cyclist', and `The Six Napoleons'. Conan Doyle's own life provides inspiration for the tales, from his days as a student doctor on a Greenland whaler to the overwhelming grief he experienced from his wife's slow death from tuberculosis. - ;Ten years after the supposed death of Sherlock Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls, Arthur Conan Doyle was to bow to popular pressure and breathe new life into his creation.

This premium quality large print edition contains the complete and unabridged classic version of His Last Bow, including eight stories featuring Arthur Conan Doyle's "consulting detective", printed on heavy, bright white paper in a large 7.44"x9.69" format, with page headers and a fully laminated full-color cover featuring an original design. Unfortunately, many ebook and recent reprint editions of His Last Bow have been assembled from a particular set of digital files which are commonly available and which contain numerous typographical errors introduced by the electronic scanning process, missing words and paragraphs, and attempts by unknown "editors" to "correct" or "update" the text based on their assumptions or personal judgments as to what the text "should be," introducing additional errors and distortions. This edition has been prepared by human editors working from an actual copy of the most widely-circulated classic 1917 version of the text, correcting only obvious typographical errors and faithfully maintaining the integrity and flavor of the original work so that the reader experiences the narratives as Arthur Conan Doyle wrote them, not as our editors think it "should be" updated. This volume contains these classic Sherlock Holmes adventures, first collected and published in book form in 1917: The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge; The Adventure of the Cardboard Box; The Adventure of the Red Circle; The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans; The Adventure of the Dying Detective; The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax; The Adventure of the Devil's Foot; His Last Bow; Additional material collected and presented for Conan Doyle fans, new or old, are a biographical sketch of the author and a detailed selected bibliography of his work. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) is known the world over as the creator of the famous consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. But Conan Doyle was a prolific writer who produced a large body of work ranging from non-fiction and full-length novels to a wide-ranging collection of short stories. Doyle's first major success as a writer came with the debut of Sherlock Holmes in the 1887 publication of A Study in Scarlet,. Holmes was a popular sensation, and more stories followed. By 1891, Sherlock Holmes was enough to provide Doyle a living, but Doyle came to resent Holmes, who kept him from what he considered "more important" work. In 1893 he "killed" Holmes, as the detective and his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, plunged to their deaths at Reichenbach Falls in "The Final Problem". It was no mere publicity stunt. Doyle considered himself finished with Mr. Sherlock Holmes. The public uproar in reaction to Holmes' "death" shocked Doyle, with even his own mother complaining, and as the clamor continued he was forced to bring the detective back in The Hound of the Baskervilles, published, to a vast public sigh of relief, in 1901. Ironically, the character Doyle resented as a "distraction" from serious work would ultimately appear in fifty-six short stories and four novels, together with countless adaptations to films, television, cartoons, and modern pastiches by an assortment of authors. In fact, the "world's first consulting detective" and Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan are widely regarded as the best-known fictional characters in the world. Other Sherlock Holmes classics available from Apex Publications in large print editions are The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Sign of the Four, A Study in Scarlet, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, and The Hound of the Baskervilles.
