When Sherlock Holmes Retired

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s final collection of Sherlock Holmes stories turns a century old this week! Published 22 October 1917, His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes includes stories which appeared in The Strand magazine in the first decade of the 20th century, including “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box” and “The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax.” It also contains the 1917 title story, in which Holmes and Watson outwit a German spy ring on the eve of World War I, and in which Holmes announces his retirement. BYU’s copy is signed by the author, but lacks the original dust jacket.
