The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes (подарочное издание)
|Автор||Arthur Conan Doyle|
|Издательства||CRW Publishing Limited, Collector's Library|
Стильно оформленное подарочное издание в суперобложке, с трехсторонним золотым обрезом и шелковым ляссе. The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes contains Conan Doyle's last twelve stories about his great fictional detective. Compared with earlier collections these tales are darker, exploring such themes as treachery, mutilation and the terrible consequences of infidelity, and containing such gothic touches as a blood-sucking vampire and crypts at midnight. Формат: 10 см x 15,5 см.These were the last 12 stories Conan Doyle wrote about Holmes and Watson. They reflect the disillusioned world of the 1920s in which they were written, and Doyle can be seen to take advantage of the new, more open conventions in fiction.
