EXPLANATORY NOTESThe first English edition of The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes, containing 12 stories, was published by John Murray on 16 June 1927, in
an edition of 15,150 copies. The Colonial issue (5000 copies), in Murray's Imperial Library, and the first American edition (by the George H. Doran Company of New York) were published on the
same day. All the stories had first appeared in the Strand Magazine,
from Oct. 1921 to Apr. 1927. This edition follows the order of first

of composition). When published in book form by Murray the
stories were arranged as follows:
|' The Adventure of the Illustrious Client'|
|' The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier'|
|' The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone'|
|' The Adventure of the Three Gables'|
