by Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes His Last Bow The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Sherlock Holmes His Last Bow The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes book, Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) "His Last Bow. The War Service of Sherlock Holmes", later titled "His Last Bow: An Epilogue of Sherlock Holmes", is one of 56 short stories about Sherlock Holmes written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It was first published in September 1917 in The Strand Magazine and collected as the last of an anthology of eight stories titled His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes the following month. The narration is in the third person, instead of the first-person narration usually provided by the character of Dr. Watson, and it is a spy story, rather than a detective mystery. Due to its portrayal of British and German spies on the eve of war, its publication during the First World War, and its patriotic themes, the story has been interpreted as a propaganda tool intended to boost morale for British readers Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) On the eve of World War I. A German agent awaits one last package containing valuable naval signals before he prepares to leave for Berlin. A London landlady has a mysterious tenant who is never seen to emerge from his room. A rich elderly woman disappears from her home. The highly confidential plans to build a submarine are missing though ten pages are found near the body of a naval clerk. These mysteries and many more are brought to the house on Baker Street where Sherlock Holmes resides. But no case is too tricky for the world's most famous sleuth and his incredible powers of deduction. Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) 'His Last Bow', the title story of this collection, tells how Sherlock Holmes is brought out of retirement to help the Government fight the German threat at the approach of the First World War. The Prime Minister himself requests Holmes's services to hunt down the remarkable German agent, Von Bork. Several of the detective's earlier cases complete the volume, including 'Wisteria Lodge', 'The Bruce-Partington Plans', and 'The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax'. In 'The Dying Detective', Dr Watson is horrified to discover Holmes at death's door from a mysterious tropical disease as his friend lays a trap for a murderer Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes)

His Last Bow

by Arthur Conan Doyle, Sir, His Last Bow Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download His Last Bow book, This premium quality large print edition contains the complete and unabridged classic version of His Last Bow, including eight stories featuring Arthur Conan Doyle's "consulting detective", printed on heavy, bright white 60# paper in a large 7.44"x9.69" format, with page headers and a fully laminated full-color cover featuring an original design. Unfortunately, many ebook and recent reprint editions of His Last Bow have been assembled from a particular set of digital files which are commonly available and which contain numerous typographical errors introduced by the electronic scanning process, missing words and paragraphs, and attempts by unknown "editors" to "correct" or "update" the text based on their assumptions or personal judgments as to what the text "should be," introducing additional errors and distortions. This edition has been prepared by human editors working from an actual copy of the most widely-circulated classic 1917 version of the text, correcting only obvious typographical errors and faithfully maintaining the integrity and flavor of the original work so that the reader experiences the narratives as Arthur Conan Doyle wrote them, not as our editors think it "should be" updated. This volume contains these classic Sherlock Holmes adventures, first collected and published in book form in 1917: The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge; The Adventure of the Cardboard Box; The Adventure of the Red Circle; The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans; The Adventure of the Dying Detective; The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax; The Adventure of the Devil's Foot; His Last Bow; Additional material collected and presented for Conan Doyle fans, new or old, are a biographical sketch of the author and a detailed selected bibliography of his work. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) is known the world over as the creator of the famous consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. But Conan Doyle was a prolific writer who produced a large body of work ranging from non-fiction and full-length novels to a wide-ranging collection of short stories. Doyle's first major success as a writer came with the debut of Sherlock Holmes in the 1887 publication of A Study in Scarlet,. Holmes was a popular sensation, and more stories followed. By 1891, Sherlock Holmes was enough to provide Doyle a living, but Doyle came to resent Holmes, who kept him from what he considered "more important" work. In 1893 he "killed" Holmes, as the detective and his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, plunged to their deaths at Reichenbach Falls in "The Final Problem". It was no mere publicity stunt. Doyle considered himself finished with Mr. Sherlock Holmes. The public uproar in reaction to Holmes' "death" shocked Doyle, with even his own mother complaining, and as the clamor continued he was forced to bring the detective back in The Hound of the Baskervilles, published, to a vast public sigh of relief, in 1901. Ironically, the character Doyle resented as a "distraction" from serious work would ultimately appear in fifty-six short stories and four novels, together with countless adaptations to films, television, cartoons, and modern pastiches by an assortment of authors. In fact, the "world's first consulting detective" and Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan are widely regarded as the best-known fictional characters in the world.
