A beautiful new edition of Arthur Conan Doyle’s first Sherlock Holmes novel, illustrated by Vincent Mallie.

For over 130 years, the world has been enraptured by the stoic, ephemeral genius of the world’s greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes. Created by British author Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887, Holmes has sparked the imagination of generations of fans around the world through four novels and 56 short stories. He has been the subject of countless adaptations and portrayals. Guinness World Records lists him as the most portrayed literary human character in film and television history. The name Sherlock Holmes sparks recognition from nearly every person on Earth.

And yet, few are familiar with his very first adventure.

Holmes first appeared in the 1887 detective novel A Study in Scarlet,” which met very little fanfare until the character found more widespread popularity through his serialized short stories in The Strand Magazine. That first adventure recounts the first meeting of Holmes and the man who would become his stalwart partner against crime, Dr. John Watson.

And now, that first sprawling adventure is vividly retold through the animated vision of illustrator Vincent Mallie.
