Descripción del producto
"These beautifully produced volumes, as big as gold-tooled church bibles, packed with cross-references and indexes, suggest Homes and Watson are not only immortal but the subject of a fanatical and crazy religion." Roger Lewis, The Sunday Express, 30 Jan 2005
Reseña del editor
This monumental edition promises to be the most important new contribution to Sherlock Holmes literature since William Baring-Gould's 1967 classic work. In this boxed set, Leslie Klinger, a leading world authority, reassembles Arthur Conan Doyle's 56 classic short stories in the order in which they appeared in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century book editions. Inside, readers will find a cornucopia of insights: beginners will benefit from Klinger's insightful biographies of Holmes, Watson, and Conan Doyle; history lovers will revel in the wealth of Victorian literary and cultural details; Sherlockian fanatics will puzzle over tantalizing new theories; art lovers will thrill to the 800-plus illustrations, which make this the most lavishly illustrated edition of the Holmes tales ever produced. The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes illuminates the timeless genius of Arthur Conan Doyle for an entirely new generation of readers.Ver Descripción del producto

Baring-Gould's "The Annotated Sherlock Holmes" was published in 1967, the year he died. I still have it, and have been reading it since acquiring a copy of the two-volume set in the mid-1970s. It was then and is now a wonderful reading experience -- the text of the stories flanked by helpful annotations. Don't know what a dog cart is, for example? Baring-Gould supplied you with an informative -- and often charming and witty -- note about it.
But clearly, it was time for an update. Enter "The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes," a project overseen by Leslie S. Klinger, a lawyer and writer. Basically, Klinger shows the same respect for the Holmes canon as did Baring-Gould, but offers new annotations and insights gleaned from all the Holmes scholarship that has taken place in the four decades since Baring-Gould died.
I refrain from giving it four stars for just one reason: Unlike Baring-Gould's, this two-volume edition contains only the 56 Holmes short stories and NOT the four Holmes novels. Personally, I think the project could have been done without expanding it to a three-volume set, but unfortunately that did not happen. For the novels, you will have to buy Klinger's "The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes: The Novels." However, I must also confess that I went ahead and purchased that separate volume. Die-hard Holmes fans will do the same. If you have such a person in your life, getting these three volumes for him or her surely would be considered a marvelous gift.
Notes and comments appear rather US oriented, and some of the definitions and explanations reveal a somewhat lack of familiarity with the English way of life. Does an American need a definition of a tram-car? Nonetheless, I treasure my copy!
