Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes is perhaps the world's most
famous detective. The 'Focus on Sherlock Holmes' series is devoted
to bringing the books to an even wider audience. George Cavendish
has added explanations as footnotes to help those readers who are
not familiar with some of the phrases used by the author and his
characters - after all the stories were written over 120 years ago.
Some of the author's phrases are still in use in modern-day British
English and these are described to make the text clearer to English
speakers from outside of the UK, or to those who do not speak
English as a first language. Also included is some background
information on places, names and terms used in the story. The book
features the original drawings from the first publication.
