Original Title: The Case Book Of Sherlock HolmesThe Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes is the final set of twelve Sherlock Holmes short stories (56 total) by Arthur Conan Doyle first published Strand Magazine October 1921 - April 1927. The first British edition and the first American edition of the collection were both published in June 1927. However, they had slightly different titles. The title of the British collection was The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes (hyphenated "Case-Book"), whereas title of the American was The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes ("Case Book" as two words). Further confusing the issue of the title, some later publishers publish the collection under the title The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes ("Casebook" as a single word). The Case-Book contains three stories not narrated by Dr. Watson, as most Sherlock Holmes stories are. "The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone" is narrated in the third person, since it was adapted from a stage play in which Watson hardly appeared. "The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier" and "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane" are both narrated by Holmes himself, the latter being set after his retirement. The original chronological order in which the twelve stories in The Case-Book were published is as follows: "The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone" (told in third-person), "The Problem of Thor Bridge", "The Adventure of the Creeping Man", "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire", "The Adventure of the Three Garridebs", "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client", "The Adventure of the Three Gables", "The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier" (narrated by Holmes), "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane" (narrated by Holmes), "The Adventure of the Retired Colourman", "The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger" and "The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place".
