No characters in English literature since those in the Great Dickens gallery have taken so firm a hold upon the British and American imagination as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. This selection draws the best stories from the several Sherlock Holmes volumes, and shows how the famous detective and his assistant are elevated above the level of fiction and into the realm of mythology, where the learned and the simple meet on equal footing.
