Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Topsites

Visitors since Aug 21, 2006:

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 11 short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, published in 1894.

The stories are as follows:



When first published in the Strand Edition in 1894, the Memoirs contained one additional story viz. The Cardboard Box. The London edition however did not contain this story.

It is believed that the story was removed on request by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as it included adultery and was considered unsuitable for young readers. The US edition went on to publish a revised edition soon after this which excluded The Cardboard Box.

However, the same was republished when it was added to His Last Bow.
