Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
This premium quality edition contains the complete original text of eight of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic short stories, published as a collection in 1917, in a newly edited and freshly typeset version. With a generous 6"x9" page size, this Summit Classic Press edition is printed on heavyweight bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design. Page headers and modern page design that echoes the look and feel of traditional book publishing values exemplify the attention to detail given this volume.
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.

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.

Notă biografică

Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859. He trained to be a doctor at Edinburgh University and eventually set up a medical practice in Southsea. During the quiet periods between patients, he turned his hand to writing, producing historical novels such as Micah Clarke and adventure yarns including The Lost World, as well as four novels and fifty-six stories involving his most celebrated creations, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Doyle was knighted in 1902. In later life he devoted much of his time to his belief in Spiritualism, using his writing and celebrity as a means of providing funds to support activities in this field. He died in 1930.
