If you're a Holmes fan, this limited edition illustrated Sherlock Holmes set will make a great addition to your collection: This app contains all the short stories (56) all the novels (4) plus 3 lost works and includes all the original illustrations from, Richard Gutschmidt, Frank Wiles and Sidney Paget, (who is arguably the most famous illustrator of the Sherlock Holmes books). The highlight of this app are the illustrations, since Sydney Paget practically defined the way Sherlock Holmes appeared. Conan Doyle's descriptions can lead one to visualize Holmes. However it was Sydney Paget who set it on paper. and the fact that he was working along with Conan Doyle, brings in the authenticity and approval of the visual representation of the stories. Which today still provide the mold of the original hero in production on stage, screen and television.
