The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his famous detective.
These are the first of the Sherlock Holmes short stories, originally published as single stories in the Strand Magazine from July 1891 to June 1892. The book was published in England on October 14, 1892 and in a US Edition on October 15 by Harper. The initial combined print run was 14,500 copies.
The book was banned in the Soviet Union in 1929 for occultism, although the book shows few to no signs of such material. However, later the embargo was lifted.
