The original stories
Four novels and five books of short stories, published between 1887 and
1927 -- full
information on Sherlockian.Net. Not all old books are first
editions -- especially, there are scores of
"pirated" editions of
The Sign of the Four -- but they can be of great interest.
In recent years, as
copyright has been expiring on the works of Arthur Conan Doyle, there
are again many, often cheap, editions available.
In between, these are some editions of special interest:
The Complete Sherlock Holmes, published by Doubleday (paperback edition
by Penguin), includes all 60 of the original stories.
The Oxford Sherlock Holmes, newly edited text
with many informative notes, published 1993 in hardback and paperback editions.
The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, edited by
Leslie Klinger —
errata. It is a successor to
The Annotated Sherlock Holmes, edited by William S.
Baring-Gould, published in 1967 in one-volume and two-volume editions, heavy
with notes about "Sherlockian" scholarship.
Some significant reference books
The Encyclopaedia Sherlockiana by Jack Tracy, reference book about names,
places and Victorian details in the stories, published 1977 in hardback,
paperback edition also available.
The World Bibliography of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, by Ronald
B. De Waal, published 1974. Additional volume: The International
Sherlock Holmes, 1980. New edition,
Universal Sherlock Holmes, in five volumes, limited edition, 1994.
