'Young Stamford looked rather strangely at me over his wine-glass. "You don't know Sherlock Holmes yet," he said; "perhaps you would not care for him as a constant companion."'

Blood-daubed walls, runaway cabbies, expert singlestick players and vengeance-hungry Mormons... such is littered the world into which Sherlock Holmes steps in this, his first published case. From the initial horrors of the Lauriston Gardens mystery, Holmes shifts his focus first to London, and then to America in his hunt for a murderer. This seemingly-unsolvable riddle is also the case in which a certain Doctor Watson is first brought to Holmes' attention--at first an innocuous match, but one that would soon become one of the finest crime-solving partnerships in the history of detective fiction.

This CBy Student Edition offers the full, unabridged 1887 text, complete with Joseph Bell's essay on the character of Holmes, a full set of illustrations, a biography of the author and a set of student notes to aid contextual analysis.
