SeaWolf Press is proud to offer another book in its Arthur Conan Doyle 100th Anniversary Collection. Each book in the collection contains the text, illustrations, and cover from the first or early edition.

His Last Bow is a collection of previously published Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, including the titular short story, "His Last Bow. The War Service of Sherlock Holmes" (1917). The collection's first US edition adjusts the anthology's subtitle to Some Later Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes. All editions contain a brief preface, by "John H. Watson, M.D.", that assures readers that as of the date of publication (1917), Holmes is long retired from his profession of detective but is still alive and well, albeit suffering from a touch of rheumatism.

This version has:

  • 50 original illustrations. Don't be fooled by other versions with missing or made-up pictures.
  • Text that has been proofread to avoid errors common in other versions.
  • The complete text in an easy-to-read font similar to the original.
  • Properly formatted text complete with correct indenting, spacing, footnotes, italics, and tables.

Preface by John H. Watson M.D.

"Adventure of the Second Stain," found in The Return of Sherlock Holmes, is story #40.

Valley of Fear is story #47.
