The Complete Sherlock Holmes: All 4 Novels and 56 Short Stories

The Complete Sherlock Holmes -  Arthur Conan Doyle Read this right out of high school in my rabid mystery-reading phase. I loved it. The intro is written by Christopher Morley. I didn't know who that was at the time, but as I pull it off my shelf this evening, I feel I must at least read that, as I have since discovered Morley's wonderful books, Parnassus on Wheels and The Haunted Bookshop.
