View all copies of this ISBN edition:. Some gave considerable background information about the era in which the stories take place, which generally contribute to the text. Others, however, concern the truth of obscure details of the story such as train schedules which were of no interest to me. It is quite obvious that Holmes' inferences are often abduction run amok there are other plausible explanations of the data , but I simply leave that aside as part of a suspension of disbelief. For those reading the stories like me, rather than like the Sherlockian Scholars the volume is aimed at, these notes can be safely skipped over.
The volume also contains a large number of excellent illustrations collected from various sources. A few superflous to this audience footnotes aside, this is a wonderful edition of these excellent stories.
